<< New or Time-Sensitive Items >>


On February 7, 2008, the City of Kirkwood suffered through one of the most difficult times of its existence, when six (6) of its public officials were ultimately killed or injured and would later die. Two (2) of them were police officers, Tom Ballman and William Biggs, with Council Members Connie Karr and Michael Lynch also among the dead that night. Ken Yost, Director of Public Works, was also killed on this fateful date. Some seven (7) months later, Mayor Mike Swoboda died of complications from his gunshot wounds received that evening. It is hard to remember that night, given the pain it has caused but, if we do not, all of us would not be recognizing the sacrifices that were made by them, along with their families and friends. All of us in municipal government want to send our thoughts and condolences to the City, and its residents, as well as to the families and friends of the deceased. May you find peace in their goodness and commitment to their jobs.

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. On 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.

The Rural Internet Access Committee (RIAC) held its February 6, 2020 meeting, where the members reviewed the seven (7) letters of intent the City received regarding the Request for Proposals (RFP). The respondents that submitted letters of intent include the following: Bays ET, Design Nine, MetroNet, Spectrum,  Ting, Utopia Fiber, and Wisper ISP. The City of Wildwood appreciates these companies' interest in this essential need and working toward solutions for full, high-speed internet service to all of this community. 

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.

Many of you who live along the City's system of creeks, drainageways, and/or floodplains should have received 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. to report a problem on your property or near you, please click on this link - https://www.cityofwildwood.com/formcenter/watershed-erosion-task-force-20/erosion-reporting-form-122 - and complete the form.

Graphic for Wildwood 2020

“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.

State Route 109/State Route 100 Intersection - Underway

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.

Phase 2 – 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: More recently, the contractor has been completing trail and pedestrian improvements on either side of the right-of-way area, installing lighting, and addressing on-going flatwork in association with the two (2) new roundabouts. As the project calendar moves into better weather conditions, additional 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!

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. All utility relocations are complete.

The installation of stormwater improvements is nearly complete, along with other improvements, 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.

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 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.
