John Lockwood Testifies Before the NKC BoS on Aug 12, 2019
August 12, 2019 – The Board of Supervisors voted 4:1 to adopt an ordinance that adds Combat/Tactical Training Facilities to the list of prohibited uses in New Kent County. More than 20 NK County residents in orange shirts attended the meeting. Seven Barhamsville residents testified in favor of the prohibition, and no one testified against. They spoke on the reasons the existing county laws are not adequate to protect the community against the dangers and disruption of a combat range, including the fact that Curtis application was to come to the Planning Commission with no negative recommendations, the lack of noise ordinances, the lack of safety regulations, and the deficiencies of the CUP process. You can read the full text of their remarks.

July 10, 2018 (VA Gazette) – Barhamsville residents, Curtis Security sound off on proposed tactical facility concerns
Barhamsville resident and No Combat Range New Kent group member John Lockwood said he doesn’t think Curtis Security can guarantee that their measures will stop a stray bullet from leaving the range.
“Their control is the end of the range, they can’t make any guarantees,” Lockwood said. “Other facilities have surface danger zones, which is miles of land free of residences, people or anything, in case of ricochet or stray bullets, and this facility won’t have that.”
