The City of Chandler conducted a public meeting regarding the Paseo Vista Recreation area near McQueen and Ocotillo Roads on July 19, 2006.

  • The site is a former land fill.

  • As a result permanent structures are not being considered.

  • Approximately 50 people attended the meeting.

  • About half of the audience indicated that they were archers or archery supporters and were looking forward to the range.

  • Planning:  The sketch of the parks layout is completely flexible.

  • The hope is to provide a berm and canopy trees around the range.

  • The ASAA plans to submit a layout for a range to help with the planning process.
