and….if you are attending the 2019 Womxn’s Wave March in Port Townsend on January 20, please stop by our Tarboo Ridge Coalition table at the Cotton Building (607 Water Street) to say hello, get more information and …yes, your own TRC button!

The Tarboo Ridge Coalition (TRC) believes that:

  • LOCAL CONTROL IS PARAMOUNT! No military training activities at private commercial shooting facilities.
  • COMMERCIAL SHOOTING FACILITIES should be SMALL SCALE to meet LOCAL RECREATIONAL NEEDS ONLY.
  • PUBLIC LAKES BELONG TO ALL OF US. Fishing, swimming and nature first. SHORELINES ALSO DESERVE SPECIAL PROTECTION. No commercial shooting facilities within 500 yards of lakes and navigable shorelines.
  • Existing land uses and the health and wellness of residents within three miles of new facilities must be protected from noise through RESTRICTED HOURS OF OPERATION: No more than 40 hours per week during daylight hours and PROHIBITIONS ON non-gun EXPLOSIONS and the USE OF HELICOPTERS.

OUR MISSION

The Tarboo Ridge Coalition stands against the development of the “Cedar Hills Recreational Facility.” The TRC believes that any gun range, but particularly a military-style weapons training facility, is both disruptive and dangerous, and that siting any shooting facilities on the shores of Tarboo Lake is not in the best interests of the citizens of Jefferson County. The TRC’s goal is to educate and mobilize the community against this project and preserve the unique character of Tarboo Ridge.
