More than 70 Conewago Township residents showed up at Monday night’s Board of Supervisors meeting to voice strong opposition to possible development of a shooting range for police training on the site of the former sewage plant.

An outpouring of citizen protests in Conewago township Monday evening resulted in a unanimous vote by the five supervisors to cease consideration of a police firearms training facility on the eastern edge of the municipality.

Faced with more than 70 residents, crowded into the township board room, demanding action, the supervisors recognized the futility of taking further steps in what township Manager Barbara Krebs described as “the very, very preliminary stages of looking into this.”
