Gun range will be
a distant neighbor

The planned Army site would not
impact the Honouliuli Preserve

By Gregg K. Kakesako

The Army plans to shift a proposed rifle and pistol range at Schofield 
Barracks' South Range so it will have no impact on the neighboring 
3,692-acre Honouliuli Preserve in the rugged Waianae mountain range.

The South Range qualification range is one of 32 projects, valued at 
$693 million, which the Army hopes to complete over the next decade as 
part of a major military overhaul to make it able to respond faster to 
national emergencies.

The Nature Conservancy of Hawaii had expressed concern last month that 
the Army's initial plans would have affected the northern portion of the 
preserve and the habitat of more than 70 rare and endangered species 
that live there.
