Parks & Recreation Action Plan
In November 2007, the City Council adopted a Parks and Recreation Action Plan (PDF) that had been drafted by a group of residents known as the Citizens Committee for Park Progress. This committee had been appointed by the City Council and given the task of outlining a specific plan for parks and recreation improvements over the next 10 years for the city.
The committee met for over a year to complete recommendations on acquisition of land, facilities, programming, and funding. They held a significant number of public meetings, and even conducted a random sampling of 3,000 Wildwood households for resident feedback.
In 2017, the City Council appointed the Park Action Plan Update Committee to review this document since it was now ten (10) years old. The Committee began its work by conducting a survey, which was published in the City's Gazette newsletter and mailed to all 13,000+ households in Wildwood. The results of the survey along with a year of meetings, public comments, and document review has concluded with a draft of recommended modifications to be considered by the public, and then presented to City Council for review and action. Two (2) public open houses have been scheduled to gather public comment on this plan. The open houses will be held:
- Tuesday, November 27, 2018 at Rockwood Valley Middle School from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
- Thursday, November 29, 2018 at LaSalle Springs Middle School from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
The format of the open houses will be identical, so attendees need to only attend the session that is more convenient for them.
