In March 2018, the WI DNR was sent a request by local and state snowmobile clubs to initiate a master plan amendment or revision for Blue Mound State Park to establish recreational trail use, including a snowmobile route through the park. On June 27, the Natural Resources Board voted to begin a master plan revision for Blue Mound State Park.
This process is more involved than the amendment that was proposed in 2015, approved in 2016, re-approved in 2017, and ultimately nullified in court.
According to NR 44, a plan revision can result in changes to goals and objectives for the property. The DNR estimates that plan revisions are generally completed in 1.5 to 2 years.
We're currently evaluating the situation and will post information as we learn more. We expect to be involved in the process and will need your support once again in the near-future, so stay tuned.
Where do our trail conditions reports come from? They come from people like you! If you ride the trails, share what you know about what the conditions are like. CORP needs several additional individuals to help us with reporting the trail conditions.
Doing a good job isn't as easy as it might seem. It is very subjective, and requires a good dose of common sense. If you are interested, post up and we can discuss if you might be a good fit.
