SWEETWATER COUNTY — The Rock Springs Beautification Committee, a committee of the Sweetwater County Travel and Tourism Board, would like to announce the 3rd Quarter 2016 Winner of the Pride of Place Award program, the Sweetwater Events Complex (SWEC).
Members of the SWEC board and staff, the Rock Springs Beautification Committee, and the Travel and Tourism board members attended the presentation on July 26th, 2016.
The Pride of Place Award Program is designed to recognize businesses in Rock Springs 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 Rock Springs. The Rock Springs Beautification Committee selected the Sweetwater Events Complex, located at 3320 Yellowstone Road, based on the visual appeal, improvements, and upkeep of their property.
On a quarterly basis, the Rock Springs Beautification Committee, which is comprised of representation from the Sweetwater County Joint Travel and Tourism Board, the City of Rock Springs (Mayor’s office, Downtown, City Engineer’s office and Parks and Recreation), Western Wyoming Community College, the Rock Springs Chamber of Commerce, and the Wyoming Business Council, will select a commercial 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.” – Jenissa Meredith, Executive Director, Sweetwater County Travel and Tourism Board.
Pride of Place nominations are open to the public. All nominated properties will be considered. 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.
