THERMOPOLIS (WNE) — Last week, the Hot Springs County Shooting Complex committee was notified by the State Task Force that its proposal for the State Shooting Complex has not been selected to move forward for further consideration.

The letter explained that task force members spent hours developing and reviewing criteria and proposals to select a site to recommend to the legislature. They used a matrix for evaluating each proposal independently on a scale of 1-10. The scores were then aggregated across all task force members and criteria to give each proposal an overall ranking.

Nine proposals were received.

Hot Springs received an overall score of 55.14.

Park County received the highest score of 77.57, with the City of Cheyenne receiving 71.90 points; Central Wyoming 71.47 points; Campbell County 69.52 points; Sheridan County 65.17 points, and Uinta County 64.98 points. Fremont County fell to 50.28 points and Town of Guernsey received 47.04 points.

The scores were broken down into categories including the site, accommodating service, the draw and future success.

Representatives of locations selected to move forward in the process have been notified.
