Master Plan Update Process – 2015 - Public Input Session 

The City is beginning the update of its Master Plan, which was first adopted in 1996, and then updated in 2006. This plan is updated every ten (10) years to keep it germane to residents, reflect changing conditions, and address new trends. This planned update is also taking place during the City's 20th Anniversary Celebration. One of the first steps in this update process is to obtain the opinions, ideas, and input from the City's residents. Your comments are essential to ensure this document remains reflective of its residents and desired character. To this end, the City will be conducting its second public input session: 
 
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 11, 2015* - ST. LOUIS COMMUNITY COLLEGE - WILDWOOD - 7:00 P.M.
*PLEASE NOTE CHANGE IN DATE
 
At this public input session, you will be given an opportunity to talk about the Master Plan and all things Wildwood, which will help the committee of resident volunteers appointed by Mayor Timothy Woerther to lead this update process.  The format of this meeting is planned to create a fun atmosphere and will be led by the resident volunteers associated with this process. Your attendance will guarantee the update of the Master Plan is based upon resident input. If you cannot attend this date, a web-based survey, with questions regarding the Master Plan, is available for you to complete at www.cityofwildwood.com. Thank you for helping in this process and taking your important time to participate in it as well.
 
Questions? Please feel free to contact the Department of Planning at (636) 458-0440 or by e-mail to joe@cityofwildwood.com. Thank you for your consideration of this invitation and helping to keep Wildwood a great place to live, work, and play.

Historic Preservation Commission – Do You Have a Story?

The Historic Preservation Commission recently updated the ordinance that governs its activities, as well as all of the preservation efforts undertaken by this community. As part of this update process, the Commission has identified a number of new initiatives relating to documenting the interesting and diverse history of the area that became the City of Wildwood. This history will be the centerpiece of a commemorative booklet that is to be published, as part of the City’s twentieth anniversary celebration. The Commission is seeking volunteers that may be long-time residents of the area to provide any oral, photographic, or artifact to it, so they may be recorded, copied, or photographed and used as part of this book. All photographs and artifacts will be returned to the lender promptly, if requested.  Anyone interested in helping the Commission in this effort is asked to please contact the Department of Planning at (636) 458-0440 or by e-mailing Joe Vujnich at joe@cityofwildwood.com to discuss your contribution to this important project. Thank you for any consideration in this regard. The members of the Commission want to ensure that the role of you and your family in the development of this area that is now known as Wildwood is not lost to future generations.

Historic Community Markers Program

Over the past few years, the City of Wildwood, led by its Historic Preservation Commission, has undertaken an exciting new program of developing historic community markers to recognize and honor the eleven (11) original settlements that are now located within the City and have contributed to its rich history. These eleven (11) communities are: Glencoe, Grover, Pond, Westland Acres, Centaur, Hollow, Orrville, Melrose, Kelpe, Monarch/Eatherton, and Fox Creek. As noted, these communities have contributed to the rich and storied history of the area, and existed long before the City of Wildwood was incorporated in 1995. Thus, the City Council endorsed this historic community markers program and, shortly thereafter, the Historic Preservation Commission began its research on each community, compiled information on them, and will create a marker for each to recognize them and the community they created. The first of these eleven (11) markers to be installed over the next few years is in Glencoe.
 
Therefore, on Saturday, February 28, 2015, at 10:30 a.m., the City’s Historic Preservation Commission will hold a special unveiling event for its historic community markers program, beginning with the recognition of the Glencoe Historic Marker. This sign will be installed at Glencoe City Park, near the parking area. If inclined, the Historic Preservation Commission encourages you to attend this unveiling and be a part of the City of Wildwood’s rich history by recognizing this area’s past. This unveiling will follow the 13th Annual Cabin Fever Hike sponsored by the Open Space Council (OSC) and the City of Wildwood.
 
If you should have any questions regarding the aforementioned event or information, please feel free to contact the Department of Planning and Parks at 636-458-0440. We hope to see you on February 28th!

Thank you
