Coffee With the Mayor - First Thursday of Each Month

“Wildwood 2020”

Mayor Bowlin announced his vision plan for the City of Wildwood during the City Council Work Session held on Monday, October 9, 2017.  The plan was developed based on input from residents and other stakeholders, and calls for improving residential experience and a renewed focus on the City’s original plans, said Mayor Bowlin. 

“I’m very committed to things that benefit our residents and businesses, and there’s so much we can do to make Wildwood even better for them. My plan incorporates ways to make that happen with optimal cost efficiency,” said the Mayor. The plan includes several proposed projects that will benefit residents in all eight wards, along with implementation guidelines that include resident participation and input.

The bridge location is approximately 0.6 miles from the Melrose Road intersection and approximately 2.3 miles from the Old Manchester Road intersection, as shown in this link… http://www.cityofwildwood.com/796/Bouquet-Road-Bridge-Replacement. If you have questions, please contact the City of Wildwood Department of Public Works at (636) 458-0440.

Wildwood's History - We Need You and You Can Help

YOU CAN HELP - HERE'S HOW

The City of Wildwood and the Wildwood Historical Society are writing the history of Wildwood. This EFFORT is an amazing and prestigious project. We are telling the history through the stories and pictures of the families. The 2017 Edition of this project brought us up to 1859, just prior to the Civil War. The 2018 Edition, the next chapter in this planned book, covers 1860 to 1919.

And this is where we need your help. We are requesting your family’s stories and scans of those precious photographs and documents covering our 1860 to 1919 time period – basically from the Civil War through WWI.

Please contact Jill VonGruben of the Wildwood Historical Society, at info@wildwoodhistoricalsociety.org. with any questions or submissions you may have regarding this exciting effort.
