ROCK SPRINGS — The Rock Springs Beautification Committee, a committee of the Sweetwater County Travel and Tourism Board, would like to announce the winner of the 4th Quarter Pride of Place Award program, RSNB. RSNB Bank recently celebrated 125 years of service and commitment to our community and the surrounding area.
RSNB Bank has always had a deep love and commitment to Downtown Rock Springs and its residents and in August of 2006, the bank building at 333 Broadway was replaced by a brand new main office at 200 Second Street.
The main office of RSNB Bank is made up of 2 stories and 31,573 sq. ft. The West Branch at 1987 Dewar Drive was opened in 1997. In 2014, John W. Hay III retired as President and long standing Chief Financial Officer, Ben K Hansen, was appointed President. RSNB is the only locally-owned, community bank in Rock Springs.
The Pride of Place Award Program is designed to recognize Rock Springs 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 Rock Springs. The Rock Springs Beautification Committee, a committee of the Sweetwater County Travel and Tourism Board is comprised of representation from the Rock Springs Chamber, Wyoming Business Council, City of Rock Springs, and Western Wyoming Community College, selected the RSNB based on the visual appeal and regular upkeep of their property.
On a quarterly basis, The Rock Springs Beautification Committee selects 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 for 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.
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/homes and/or landscape in the last year or have consistently maintained their properties in an attractive and well-kept manner.
