Save Mission Nature Park and Trails!

I strongly oppose The City of Mission's recent decision to lease 112 acres of city property at the Mission Nature Park on S. Conway in Mission, Texas, to the Mission Skeet and Trap Club for the purpose of expanding the gun range and shooting activities adjacent to and along the paved Hike and Bike path. The leased property contains 3 miles of multiuse trails that are currently being used by Mission residents and people from all over the Rio Grande Valley for healthy, non-motorized recreation, including walking, hiking, trail running, and mountain biking.  I believe the expansion of shooting activities poses a potential public safety risk to the estimated 12,000 persons using the Hike and Bike path annually, results in a loss of recreational opportunities that are not available elsewhere in the city, and harms the wildlife in the area.
