The adopted Capital Budget
for FY 2008 provides funding for the planning and
development of a Fire Training Center and Outdoor Firing
Range to be located adjacent to the Coral Farms Landfill.
The facility will serve as a regional Fire Training Center
in association with Culpeper and Rappahannock Counties. The
Board has previously authorized the submission of a grant
application to the Virginia Department of Fire Programs for
a burn building to be located there.
The facility also includes
a firing range to meet the training, certification and
safety requirements of the Sheriff’s Office. The range will
eventually provide 12 firing lanes with expansion allowed
for future needs.
A scope of work has been
developed with Teng and Associates that includes assistance
in preparing an application for a Special Exception Permit,
construction documents, requirements for an approved site
plan, bidding and construction phase services. It is
anticipated that construction will be initiated in the Fall
