There was some general discussion on the Town of Concord shooting ordinance 9.02. Kandy and Michael are renters of a property within the Town and are shooting in their backyard. Many neighbors presented to the board they are concerned with frequency and length of time of their shooting as it spooks their animals and are concerned for their safety as well as their children’s safety. After a lengthy discussion, the two sides could not mutually agree on the time or length of shooting. Due to the safety, noise issues, the board is asking the renters to cease shooting. The board is also asking that the planning committee review the shooting ordinance and bring forth a recommendation to revise our current ordinance.
