You may have heard Axios reported that plans to rezone the Cooper Creek Mountain Bike Park are being challenged.  Neighbors are painting mountain bikers as loud and destructive — all the behaviors that just aren’t true.  

Bicycle advocates are needed to contact the Des Moines City Council to respectfully let them know how Cooper Creek Mountain Bike Park will be an asset to the community.  


We’ve worked with CITA to develop a form to email all of the city council members at once.  Just click and follow the instructions.  


The Copper Creek Mountain Bike Park that is planned near 1601 Williams Street in Des Moines is on the agenda Des Moines City Council meeting on Monday, October 24, 2022, at 5:00 PM

CITA is asking for your show of support for this project by attending and speaking at the City Council Meeting

The public is allowed to speak for or against this project.  Each member of the public is allowed 5 minutes to speak.  Let’s show the City of Des Moines that more mountain bike trails are important for our community! 

Now is the time to have your voice heard by city leaders!  

To speak at the meeting, you must complete an online form starting on Friday, October 14th until 5 pm on Tuesday, October 18th.  Link to the form to request to speak to City Council.  

Start Time: Regularly scheduled City Council meetings occur at 5:00 PM, with proclamations starting at 4:45 PM.  Location: City Hall, Council Chambers, 400 Robert D. Ray Drive, 2nd Floor, Des Moines, IA 50309

More information about the project can be found in the city’s informational packet or on CITA’s website.  


Our partners at CITA have worked hard on this project and we need to have as many people as possible contact the council or attend the meeting.
