A Washington area business owner’s plans for an indoor shooting range are on hold for now.

Rich McDaniel, who operates River Bluff Archery at 4785 St. Ann Road in St. John’s Township, brought his expansion proposal before the Franklin County planning board Tuesday night, requesting a conditional use permit to proceed with adding a 14-lane shooting range to his existing facility.

McDaniel also wants to expand his current archery range.

The shooting range, like the archery range, would be open to the public, but McDaniel said local law enforcement have expressed interest in using the facility.

“We want this to be a place for police in this area to use to do their training,” he said.

Although no one spoke out in favor or against the requested CUP, the planning commissioners tabled the matter until next month, stating that they would like to see detailed plans for the facility.

“I would like to see more detail on the shooting range itself, including soundproofing information,” said Bill Evans, board chairman. e the Franklin County planning board Tuesday night, requesting a conditional use permit to proceed with adding a 14-lane shooting range to his existing facility.
