Quarry Park Update
by ddacko11 on April 27, 2016, 11:29 PM
Quick Quarry Park update and an ask.

The proposed plan for the trails at Quarry park was presented to the neighborhood this past Monday the 25th.  This proposal was refined by members of the city of Madison,  neighbors,  walkers and CORP.   You can see by visiting the City of Madison parks project page.   There will be a short window for any comments from users to make tweaks to the proposal.   The City has allowed us to set up the work day (with REI) on May 28th with the goal of having the proposal final by then, things are on schedule.  Based on all of the back work with the QP working group the proposed plan was solid and well thought out.

Also, I wanted to reach out to the MTB community.  There have been some reports of digging (this was not just repairing transitions which is maintenance and is OK) and log cutting at the park.  Please if you see someone ask them to stop with reason that a plan is about to set into place and not to irritate the city.  In addition, the plan is not officially approved and no work on any proposals should be made at this time.   Quarry Park has always been a place where many people came, made changes and usually improved, but with city behind MTB in the park we have to work within their parameters and trust me we will get some RAD changes at the park over the next 2 years.

Please let us know if you have a question.



Update: Cross Plains Singletrack - May Meeting
by Gary S on April 18, 2016, 10:07 PM
Thanks to everyone who attended the Cross Plains parks and rec meeting in March!  We had a great turnout and the planning committee was very receptive to the idea of establishing mixed use single track trails in the village conservancies.  They asked us to provide a more detailed trail proposal at a future meeting and tentatively have us on the planning committee agenda for May.
 
A team of us have been working on a formal trail proposal including trail maps, construction details, and club statistics.  Feel free to email me if you would like to be added to our planning group or if you have informational material or photos that could be added to the proposal.
 
Below is information for the upcoming Cross Plains parks and rec meeting.  We invite anyone who is willing to get involved to attend the meeting.
 
Date:  Monday 5/16/16
Time:  6:00pm
Location:  Rosemary Garfoot Public Library, 2017 Julius Street, Cross Plains, WI 53528
 
We will send out a copy of the trail proposal and meeting agenda prior to next month’s meeting.  Hope to see you there!

Spring Fundraiser a success!

Thanks to everyone who came out Saturday evening!  We ate all the food, drank all the beverages, sent all the raffle prizes to good homes, and raised $4500 for the trails at Blue Mound.  That doesn't even include the 10% El Grito is sending back.  Special thanks to them, to Machinery Row for hosting, their suppliers for the prizes, and Ale Asylum for the beer (we've made a note to ourselves to get more next year).  Now keep an eye on the workday schedule, and hope for some dry weather so we can start riding.
