The proposed merger of St. Louis City and St. Louis County, by a group called Better Together, could have significant impacts on the City of Wildwood. In an effort to keep residents informed on this issue, bi-weekly updates are being provided and can be found in the list below. Additionally, the City Council has passed a Resolution (#2017-38) expressing their opposition to a statewide vote on the merger. They also formed a Wildwood Preservation Commission, which is a group of citizens charged with the task of developing strategies to protect Wildwood's assets and character, i.e. watersheds, woodlands, topography, parks, and infrastructure, in the event the merger is approved at the polls in November 2020.
