GREEN RIVER — The Green River Beautification Committee, a committee of the Sweetwater County Travel and Tourism Board, would like to announce the 4th Quarter Winner of the Pride of Place Award program, Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.
Father D’Souza (ICCC Priest), Bobby Harris (ICCC Maintenance), and Kevin Kinney (ICCC Volunteer) accepted the award on December 8th, 2016.
The Pride of Place Award Program is designed to recognize Green River businesses whose properties reflect pride of ownership and commitment to the beautification of the city, thereby contributing in a positive manner to the overall appearance of Green River.
The Green River Beautification Committee, comprised of members from Sweetwater County Travel and Tourism, the Green River Chamber, Wyoming Business Council, City of Green River staff, private businesses, and Western Wyoming Community College, has selected Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, located at 900 Hitching Post Drive, based on the visual appeal and recently completed landscaping improvements to the their property.
On a quarterly basis, The Green River Beautification Committee will select a commercial property that has made an investment in their property to receive the Pride of Place Award within the city. “The physical appearance of the city, and the businesses and residential properties within it, provide a critical first impression to visitors from outside of the area. This committee would like to recognize those property owners for their efforts in maintaining their properties in a visually appealing way and truly conveying pride of place. These efforts not only effect the impression given to a visitor, but they also create a contagious sense of pride for local residents as well”, said Jenissa Meredith, Executive Director, Sweetwater County Travel and Tourism Board.

Potential nominees may have made substantial improvements to the exterior of their buildings and/or landscape in the last year or have consistently maintained their properties in an attractive and well-kept manner.
