WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) - Colonial Williamsburg’s plan for a musket-shooting range has passed one hurdle.

The Daily Press (http://bit.ly/1HSmZiS ) reports that Williamsburg’s Planning Commission gave the thumbs up this week to the shooting range, sending the proposal to City Council.

The musket range would be located between a golf course and the Colonial Parkway. It would include a 20-foot berm behind the target area, and 10-foot high berms along the sides of the site.

Colonial Williamsburg is hopeful the musket range will attract more visitors to the heritage attraction. It has seen visitors decline over the past decade.
