New firing range coming to Fort Walton Beach
FORT WALTON BEACH -- A new firing range could be coming to a local college in Fort Walton Beach.
Northwest Florida State College agreed to allow the "Dalpar Corporation" to build, and operate, a firing range on a lot near the campus.
Public safety students would use the firing range for learning purposes.
Dalpar will pick up the five million dollar bill of the new facility in exchange for the leasing of 19 acres in the college's fort walton beach campus.
About 5 acres of the property will be developed and the rest will act as a buffer for nearby residential neighborhoods.
The college already has an outdoor firing range for students' use, but construction of the Mid-Bay Bridge connector nearby limited their ability to use it.
