DAS Eyes Sprague AND Griswold

According to the DAS website there are two properties being considered for the State Police Firearms Training Facility: Lee Road in Griswold and Westminister Road in Sprague.
According to the DAS:
The Lee Road site is almost completely surrounded by the Patchaug State Forest. There are no residences adjacent to the parcel. The Westminister Road site features substantial forest land buffering a core area where the facility may be situated.-DASnewsrelease 5 May 2016
