The Collinsville City Council has approved zoning changes for The Break, a paintball and Airsoft gun facility on the western edge of the city.
The approval on Monday gives developers the go-ahead to set up and begin operating at 4604 Fairmont Ave.
The game area is planned for 48 acres between Fairmount Park Race Track, the Collinsville Waste Water Plant and Interstate 255. Developers were given a temporary placeholder permit lasting five years, allowing them to put up portable toilets, a hand washing station, concession building and large props along the game field.
The site is for airsoft guns practice and games.
