Neighbors Fight with Cumberland Security Firm
A dispute between a few Cumberland County residents and a security training company could wind up before the State Supreme Court. TigerSwan specializes in firearms training for members of the military, law enforcement and private citizens. James Reese is the CEO of TigerSwan.
James Reese: We have three landowners that have taken us to court over what they say is not the correct zoning aspect that we're in and we have been going at this for the last two-and-a-half years.
The landowners are disputing the original zoning of TigerSwan as a private school when it was built. Reese says shutting his doors could take 15 million dollars in economic development away from Cumberland County. He expects the state Supreme Court to decide by July if it will hear the case.
