The County Commission on Wednesday morning approved going ahead with development of a joint indoor firing range at the old Farmers Market site on E. 11th Street.
The city and county are to contribute $1.5 million each to go along with a $1,050,000 federal grant.
A new resolution makes no mention of disposition of the current 33-acre site at Moccasin Bend.
The plan has been to turn the 33-acre property over to the National Park Service as part of the national archaeological district at the historic Bend.
One hitch in that transfer came when city and county officials were told recently that the property will have to be cleaned up before the federal government will accept the donation.
Chickamauga Park Supt. Cathy Cook said she believes that the value of lead and brass recovered at the firing range site may cover much of the clean-up cost.
