Discussion of Preliminary Site Visit for a Demolition Request for a group of buildings and structures located at 18456 Woodland Meadows Drive (Locator Number 25X520021). Demolition is proposed for one (1) existing single-family dwelling and all associated accessory structures upon the property. The date of construction of the primary residential dwelling of historic significance is indicated as 1910, according to St. Louis County Department of Revenue – Assessor’s Office Records, and circa 1875, according to the Wildwood Historic Building Survey. This age threshold does require the HPC to consider this request, as it moves forward, given at least one (1) of these structures is in excess of 75 years of age. (Ward One)

b.

Review of letter offering options for the preservation of the primary residence that is located at 18410 St. Albans Road (Locator #24X540073). The primary building, built circa 1913, has been surveyed, and is included in the City of Wildwood’s Historic Building Inventory. (Ward One)
