The city of North Adams will begin addressing some of the security issues at the shooting range on Pattison Road but, for now, the regulations implemented in 2015 will remain in effect.

IBerkshires.com reports that the city’s Public Safety Committee had heard from range users and neighbors at a meeting two months ago about issues with security, the range's condition and possible improvements as well as concerns about excessive noise, litter and possible lead contamination.

Some of those issues were reiterated at yesterday’s meeting including a number of neighbors saying the noise had gotten too loud and that its use has increased. The meeting attracted more than two dozen residents.
