Rural Internet Access Committee (RIAC) and Consultant
Complete Request for Proposals (RFP)

The City's Rural Internet Access Committee (RIAC) recently recommended to City Council that it should consider the issuance of a Request for Proposals (RFP) that would seek responses from providers of high-speed internet services on how best to address this matter for the community. The Request for Proposals (RFP) was supported by City Council and ultimately prepared by CTC Technology & Energy, the same firm that had undertaken a review process on the best approaches for service extensions of high-speed internet access to the rural areas of Wildwood. This past Thursday, January 2, 2020, the Request for Proposals (RFP) was issued. To review this document, please click on the following link - Internet Access Request for Proposals (RFP). If you have any questions or comments about this Request for Proposals (RFP), or the earlier report of this consultant on the eight (8) approaches to extend high-speed internet to certain areas of this community, please contact the Department of Planning at (636) 458-0440. Responses will be accepted by the City of Wildwood through the closing date of April 3, 2020.

State Route 109/State Route 100 Intersection
<<< Construction Update >>>

Work continues in earnest on this major road, bridge, and pedestrian improvement project at the center of the City. With the first phase completed, the City and the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) are continuing to monitor the situation in terms of backups and lengths of time vehicles are queued at the traffic signals to ensure circulation through the area remains reasonable and safe. For more information, click on this link - State Route 109 Project.

(Updated) Phase 2 is Nearing Completion (Ahead of Schedule!) – The contractor completed the new pavement areas on the west side of State Route 109, which led to the opening of both roundabouts, which are now situated south of State Route 100, on December 9, 2019. This changeover, and use of the roundabouts, appears to have made traffic flow much better through this area and will provide for safer travel during the winter months. The contractor is continuing to complete flatwork relative to the two (2) new roundabouts, along with other safety improvements within the driving areas of State Route 109.

February 2020 – May 2020: Work will include trail construction, bridge staining, girder painting, detention basin construction, landscaping, seeding, and sodding.

May 2020:  Project Completed.
This project has been in the planning, design, and engineering phases for over a year and is now underway. It is partially funded by grants, allowing Wildwood residents to obtain the most improvements for their taxpayer dollars. As with all construction projects, some inconvenience should be anticipated, so please slow down and remember safety first. Everyone benefits when we work together!

Stormwater Runoff and Erosion Issues

Many residents have reported issues with stormwater runoff and erosion, with the numerous storm events the City has experienced this past spring and summer. These reports range from water in backyard areas, to overflowing ditches and creeks, to impassable roadways. The City is attempting to understand all of these concerns. Along with addressing and/or responding to these issues, the City Council formed a Watershed Erosion Task Force to study causes, identify issues, and develop a plan to address them in the future. Soon, many of you that live along the City's system of creeks, drainageways, and other locations that are similar will be receiving a survey asking for your input about these conditions. The members of this Task Force need this information to develop its plan, with steps and solutions. Please check back to the e-newsletter to obtain more information on the task force and this survey in the coming weeks. All of the Task Force's meetings are open to the public, which last met on December 4, 2019. The next of its meetings is scheduled for January 22, 2020, at 6:30 p.m., City Hall. Thank you in advance for your participation and interest!

“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.

Two (2) major projects are underway. These projects include the following:

Manchester Road Streetscape - Phase 3 - Underway

The project's boundaries are from the Taylor Road Roundabout to Eatherton Road. Major improvements to the existing roadway include sidewalks and dedicated bicycle lanes. Ameren Missouri has completed its utility relocations, along with AT&T and others. Missouri American Water Company has completed its utility relocations. 

The installation of stormwater improvements is now underway, which will impact traffic flow along Manchester Road during this phase of the project. Thereafter, other phases of the project will then begin in their planned sequences and also cause certain delays on Manchester Road, through their construction cycles as well. This work is scheduled to minimize delays, but inevitably traffic flow in this project area will be slow at certain times due to the nature of the work.

Wildwood Community Park - Phase 3 - Completed

Great Meadow Area: new utilities, shelters, parking area, and further trail connections. The City's selected contractor has completed the installation of the water line, electrical service, stormwater improvements, multiple-use trail, and many of the required roadway/parking improvements.

Snow Plow Chart

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 or your driveway, providing a certain way to reduce the possibility that you will have to do very much re-clearing after a snow plow 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.
