The Stutsman County Commission took no action on a preliminary request to lease land east of the Jamestown Reservoir for a proposed gun range Tuesday.

Keith Domke, president of the Jamestown Marksmanship Education Range, had requested the county enter into a long-term lease for 27 acres and agree to construct and maintain road access.

Domke said the organization was planning an indoor pistol and rifle range with a possible outdoor archery range. He said that the project would not need the entire 27-acre parcel.

Ramone Gumke, Stutsman County commissioner, said the project was very doable but wanted to see costs for the planned road and to explore leasing a smaller parcel of land for the project.

The county did not set a date for reviewing changes to the project.


"We are interested in working with you," said Mark Klose, chairman of the commission.

The commission also approved the county share of $120,000 requested by the Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corp. for planning funds for the Buffalo City Park.
