Wildwood Planning and Parks Committee Recommends Modifications for Hidden Valley Zipline Proposal
Wildwood, Mo. – The City of Wildwood Planning and Parks Committee voted last night to recommend modifications to Hidden Valley’s Conditional Use Permit, including a new location proposed by Peak Resorts for Zipline 4, which moved it even farther away from nearby residences.
The Committee also recommended modifying the permitted location for Zipline 3, allowing it to be placed slightly outside the current Conditional Use Permit boundary, but farther from the nearest residences than Hidden Valley originally proposed.
Finally, the Committee recommended modifying the days and hours of operations to permit year-round activity, but limited between 9:00 a.m. and sunset.
“Our goal from the beginning of this process has been to find a balance between the interests of Hidden Valley and the residents of Wildwood,” Mayor Jim Bowlin, said. “We want to come to the best possible compromise, bringing maximum benefit to both.”
The Committee’s recommendation will be submitted to the Wildwood City Council for consideration at its January 22, 2018 meeting.
