Jonesboro city leaders have discussed the possibility to have a Shooting Sports Complex for years and now, they are moving forward.

They are now looking at purchasing 200 acres of land in Jonesboro, contingent on funds appropriated.

Jonesboro Police Chief Rick Elliott said they are nearing the last step in the planning process for the complex.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is scheduled to have a meeting next week on how they plan to proceed with the project.

After that is done, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will review the final paperwork for approval.
