‘No shooting’ ordinance for Conway Ranch removed


A “no shooting” ordinance covering the Conway Ranch property has been amended and shooting, camping, snowmobiling and night time use will soon be allowed on the property after raising little resistance at a Tuesday Mono County Board of Supervisors meeting.

Mono County owns the Conway Ranch, a scenic swathe of open space at the base of Conway Summit, and had put in place rules prohibiting these activities when it bought the property more than a decade ago.

But local opposition has caused the county to reconsider its stand on these issues—despite Supervisor Larry Johnston’s resistance to many of the new rules (due to his fear the county could be held liable).
