ACTION ALERT: WE NEED YOUR HELP BY JULY 31, 2015 - Public comments are needed in support of Mountain Biking at Blue Mound State Park. The park is currently undergoing an Amendment Process to the parks Master Plan which dictates how the park may be used in the future. Once this Master Plan is finalized it is not easily amended, in fact, it’s only been amended twice since 1980. If we do not act now to secure our current position and advocate for expansion of the MTB trails WE COULD LOSE ACCESS.
Currently the DNR is hesitant to allow any expansion of the park’s MTB trail system. The park has beautiful land and exciting terrain for MTB trails should we be granted permission to expand the trail system.
For now, we want to protect the trail access we currently enjoy and advocate for expansion of the MTB system.
The amendment process is also considering many other issues at the park including allowing snowmobile access. More information on the amendment and process may be found here: Blue Mound Master Plan
What do we need you to do?
1. Contact Paul Zajackowski BY JULY 31st and state that you wish they continue to allow mountain biking at Blue Mound State Park AND that you wish for the park to EXPAND the current mountain biking trail system. (It is important to be specific about the Mountain Biking trails)
Paul may be reached via email, phone or by writing:
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources
3911 Fish Hatchery Road, Fitchburg, WI 53711
2. Share this post with anyone and everyone you know who cares about MTB in the Midwest. We need as many people as possible to voice their support for our sport. Ask your mom, dad, brothers, sisters and anyone you see on the trail to send a message.
3. Go enjoy the trails at Blue Mound! They are open and in great condition. Check out the new Friends shelter, pool/splash pad and have some fun!
ACT NOW! ALL COMMENTS MUST BE RECEIVED BY JULY 31St (next Friday)

Next meeting is August 27. Hope to see you there.
For 2015, CORP is returning to regularly scheduled monthly Board meetings. Meetings are every 4th Thursday of the month at the Fitchburg community center from 7-10pm in the Prairie View Room, unless otherwise noted. The meetings are open to members at large. We will have a Q & A session at the end of each meeting. Also, if you would like something to be discussed or would like to address the Board, please e-mail one of the Board members and we will put you on the agenda. We will publish an agenda at least 1 week before each meeting. We hope this format will encourage more participation and more transparency.
