Manchester Road Streetscape Phase 3 - Open House

The City of Wildwood held a public information meeting for the Manchester Streetscape Phase 3 Improvement Project at Wildwood City Hall on January 21, 2015. The City has begun preliminary engineering of the project and this meeting allowed the public to see the conceptual plans and discuss any concerns regarding the planned improvements with the project engineers. Phase 3 will include the section of Manchester Road between Taylor Road and Eatherton Road and will incorporate similar improvements to those recently constructed during Phases 1 and 2 to the east and west of this project. The project will incorporate vehicular lanes, bike lanes, sidewalks, street lighting, street trees, and some on-street parking lanes along both sides of Manchester Road.

You may email Mike Hartwig with comments or questions.

New Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) Issued by FEMA

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is updating its mapping for all of St. Louis County, which the City of Wildwood must adopt to remain a participant in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).  These maps represent the first major update since August 2, 1995, and contain much more accurate engineering information, which was compiled from new flood studies and improved topographic data.  In some cases, the updated maps now identify greater or lesser-impacted land areas.  The new FIRMs, and associated Flood Insurance Study (FIS), are available for public review at Wildwood City Hall during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.).  The maps are also available for review at the following link: http://mo-wildwood.civicplus.com/474/2015-FEMA-Maps

The new maps went go effect on February 4, 2015. Any general questions or concerns can be directed to the City’s Floodplain Administrator, Ryan Thomas, at ryan@cityofwildwood.com. Additionally, any specific mapping questions or concerns can be directed to the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), Floodplain Management Section Engineer, Scott Zeller, at scott.zeller@sema.dps.mo.gov.

SUSTAINABILITY TOPICS >>>

Recycling Grant Provides Optional Larger Recycling Carts

Last year, Meridian Waste Services was successful in obtaining a recycling grant through the St. Louis-Jefferson Solid Waste Management District to provide larger recycling carts to its customers.  A total of 1,740 carts became available last August, and over 500 of them still remain.  The larger carts are 95 gallons in size, compared to the standard 65 gallon carts in use today, and also dark green in color.  If you find the 65 gallon cart to be too small for your weekly recyclables, please call Meridian Waste Services, at (314) 291-3131, and request one of the larger recycling carts.  Meridian will replace your 65 gallon recycling cart, with a new 95 gallon recycle cart, AT NO CHARGE (the old carts cannot be utilized for anything, but recycling, and will be redistributed to those needing the smaller carts).  Since quantities are limited, the larger carts will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis.
