Many residents attended Wildwood's open house Wednesday at the new municipal building, which combines city functions, municipal court and police headquarters for the first time in the city's history.
Wildwood's new municipal building, formerly referred to as the city hall, was approved by voters during April 2010, after residents from the city's wards served on a volunteer City Hall Steering Committee and after a series of public forums were held about the project to gain residents' ideas and feedback.
Citizens who served on the City Hall Steering Committee were:
Ward 1: John Gragnani
Ward 2: Dan Topik
Ward 3: Harry LeMay
Ward 4: Jack Clark
Ward 5: Seat Vacant
Ward 6: Mike Patton
Ward 7: Don Marshall
Ward 8: David Bertorelli
The new building replaced the leased city hall at 183 Plaza Drive and the St. Louis County Police Department-Wildwood (6th) Precinct office at 17014 D New College Ave.
Project architects were the Wildwood Collaborative composed of Powers Bowersox Associates, Dennis Tacchi & Associates, John C. Guenther, Architect, and helmuth + bicknese architects.
