The Natrona County Commission designated Archery Range Road a county road this week.

 "It's become important to make it a county road," Brad Moore of the Lost Arrow Archery Club told the commissioners during a public hearing Tuesday.

The road, which runs off County Road 505 between the county's Nordic ski center and Beartrap Meadow, provides access to the Casper Mountain Archery Range. Making the road a county road means it will now be maintained by the county.

"It's a five-star archery course," archery club president George Buckley said. "We want to get it back to what it used to be 40 years ago when people came from all over the country."

Commissioner Terry Wingerter said the process to work out agreements with landowners along what will now be designated County Road 514 took years to achieve.

Commissioner Rob Hendry said he favored the establishment of the road, but he cautioned other roads need care, too.

There was no comment during a public hearing to renew 19 liquor licenses and malt beverage permits, including the permits for strip clubs Northern Dreams and Cowboys.

All county liquor licenses are up for renewal in February.
