Coffee With the Mayor - First Thursday of Each Month

“Wildwood 2020”

Mayor Bowlin has 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.

Hidden Valley Zip Line Course

This proposal has now been finalized by the City Council, by its adoption of a Resolution granting the Conditional Use Permit (CUP). The City Council endorsed the Planning and Zoning Commission's action on this permit, including its conditions, but did make several changes. These changes can be summarized as follows:

  1. Allow the zip line course to operate twelve (12) months per year (in lieu of seven (7) months, as recommended by the Planning and Zoning Commission).
  2. Allow the zip line course to have hours of operation to sunset (in lieu of the 6:00 p.m. cut-off for the last tour to start, with all activity concluded on the course by 7:30 p.m.).
  3. Allow Zip Line #3 to extend into a new area of the property (slightly expanding the permit area in terms of its overall size) and as requested by Hidden Valley Ski Resort (the petitioner).
  4. Endorse the change in Zip Line #4's location (instead of a north to south line, now it is an east to west line across the site and shorter in length).

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 of your driveway, opening a certain way to reduce the possibility that you will have to do very much re-clearing after a snowplow 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.
