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.
