Attention Rockwoods Reservation Visitors 

Beginning on Monday, February 13, 2017, the vehicular bridge on Glencoe Road, immediately south of the Education Building, will be closed for approximately 120 days for replacement. During this time, visitors can still utilize the State Route 109 entrances to access the Lime Kiln Trail, Turkey Ridge Trail, Wildlife Habitat Trail, and picnic areas. However, in order to access the Education Center, Green Rock Trail, and Rock Quarry Trail, visitors will be directed around an approximately five (5) mile detour. The pedestrian bridge on the Trail Among the Trees, which is adjacent to the vehicular bridge, will generally be open and allow visitors to access the whole area by foot. However, due to the above mentioned bridge construction, the trail may periodically be closed at the adjacent foot bridge and be limited to an out and back use, instead of the normal loop. This trail also has a different bridge out that requires through hikers to cross a ravine or turn around at the halfway point. For updated information on the road closure, please use this link - nature.mdc.mo.gov/discover-nature/places/rockwoods-reservation.


The March Coffee with Mayor Bowlin will be devoted to the vision for Wildwood over the next few years. Please join Mayor Bowlin to offer your thoughts on where you would like to see us go.

However, the City is only reaching a small portion of the population and would like to reach many more of our citizens.  While not everyone wishes to receive yet another weekly e-mail, it is likely many citizens are unaware that the City’s weekly e-newsletter exists. Therefore, the City is asking for your assistance in sharing this opportunity to stay informed about Wildwood.  The following link will take you directly to the Subscription Section of the City Website: http://www.cityofwildwood.com/list.aspx. Through this link, you can subscribe to the weekly e-newsletter, as well as sign up for Traffic & Weather Alerts, News Flashes, and many other City notifications.
 
The City would also ask that you forward this notice to friends and family, or share through social media sites, and let’s see if we can grow our subscriber base and keep the citizens of our great community well-informed.

How to Keep Your Driveway Entrance
From Filling with Snow

Throughout the winter months, State, County, and City snowplow crews will be out clearing the highways, roads, and streets during and after each snowfall. Homeowners and other property owners will be clearing their driveways at the same time.

Many times, while this is going on, a snowplow truck will go by and fill in the end of a freshly cleared private driveway with snow from the roadway. This is not intentional, and there is a way this wintertime inconvenience can be minimized.

The diagram below shows how you can clear snow around the end of your driveway, opening a certain way to reduce the possibility that you will have to do very much re-clearing after a snowplow truck goes by on the road next to your driveway.

The idea is to place as much snow as possible when clearing your driveway in the direction of travel downstream on your side of the roadway. Next is to clear an area upstream from your driveway opening to form a "pocket" for the snow from the roadway to go into instead of at the end of your driveway.

The result is more of the snow accumulation from clearing the roadway will go into this open pocket area and less will wind up at the end of your driveway.

A note of caution is in order. Please be extremely careful when working next to the roadway—especially when snowplowing operations are in progress.
