Ballwin Board Approves Vlasis Park Shooting Range

BALLWIN, MO (KMOX) – Ballwin has taken the first step in allowing a new indoor shooting range on Manchester Road across from Vlasis Park.

City planning and zoning commissioners voted unanimously Monday night to allow the former site of Rothman Furniture to be rezoned for the shooting range.

As for approving the construction of the project, Commissioner Sue Theodore says she doesn’t like how close it would be to the park.

“I would rather see it somewhere else because I think parks are for families, families with kids, and the park is filled all the time,” she said. “When people think of parks you think of relaxation, recreation.”

The petition to open the range at that specific site was tabled and will be taken up by the Ballwin Board of Adjustment by the end of the month.
