The archery range is on the agenda for the Pasadena City Council meeting on MONDAY (February 2). The item is scheduled for 8:00 PM. We really need a strong turnout from YOU, our supporters of the archery range.
The city council meets in room S249 of the Pasadena City Hall, 100 North Garfield Avenue.
The proposal being put before the City Council includes a very troubling element, asking the City Council to:
“Direct the City Manager to work with the Pasadena Roving Archers and residents to pursue the identification of a suitable alternate site for archery activity in order to allow the southern range in the Lower Arroyo to be used for passive recreational uses on weekdays and roving archery on weekends”
This would seem to open the door to declare that, for example, a much smaller target archery range is a suitable substitute for the historic Lower Arroyo Archery Range. Limiting archery in the Lower Arroyo to weekends only is the first step towards eliminating it entirely. Exactly what our opponents want.
The complete proposal is available as part of the meeting agenda available here (scroll down to item #13).
