About the Book
Presently, most people experience Green River while zooming past its interstate exits at 80 miles per hour. Since Green River is the eastern end of the longest stretch of I-70 without any services, many stop for gas, maybe a motel or a meal. However, as they make their hasty exit from town, they are missing far more than they see.
Waypoint: Green River was initiated by Epicenter, in partnership with the City of Green River. This document outlines recommendations for appropriate reinvestment in Green River’s downtown and is envisioned as a first step in a downtown development program. As with other planning studies, it is intended to be a working document that public officials and civic groups can refer to for guidance in the redevelopment and rejuvenation of the downtown area.
