The City of Green River has been awarded a $1 million grant from the Wyoming State Land Investment Board for “Destination Green River Station”, the redevelopment and restoration of the historic Union Pacific Railroad Depot.
Green River Councilmember Brett Stokes and Marty Black, City Administrator, traveled to Cheyenne last week to represent the City and community. “We are pleased that the State Land Investment Board approved the unanimous recommendation of the Wyoming Business Council, their support for reinvestment in our local community is critical for the future.” Black said.
“This is the second time in the last six months that the State has stepped forward to help Green River move forward with exciting projects that benefit all members of the community,” Stokes said. “The funding that the State Land Investment Board has provided for our new Police Building and now for the Depot is allowing us to leverage local resources and return state funds back for the benefit of our residents.”
The next steps will be to prepare the construction plans and documents for this first phase of the project, including the roof and exterior of each of the three existing buildings and the renovation of Lynch Hall.
