Residents Continue to Weigh In on Hidden Valley As Decision Nears
WILDWOOD, MO – November 17, 2017 – Residents of Wildwood continue to speak out on the petition from Peak Resorts to add ziplines at Hidden Valley. Since the November 6th Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, where dozens of residents participated in the public comments part of the agenda, the city of Wildwood has received additional feedback from a large number of nearby residents.
Residential input on ziplining at Hidden Valley continues, said Planning and Parks Director Joe Vujnich. Most of the comments are supportive of a compromise, while others are either for or against the project all together, said Vujnich. On Monday, November 20th the Planning & Zoning Commission will vote on an amended final recommendation put forth by Vujnich to approve the Peak Resorts application to add four zipline tracks and landing areas, with conditions.
“Wildwood recognizes how valuable recreational venues are to our residents and the region, and Hidden Valley is an important business in our City. We’d like to see Peak Resorts compromise on the zipline petition, so Hidden Valley can succeed in harmony with our residents’ interests,” said Mayor Jim Bowlin.
