HENDERSON, Nev.— The Henderson Commemorative Beautification Commission (HCBC) named Green Valley Ranch Resort & Spa the most recent recipient of its Community Pride Award. The award was presented at the Henderson City Council meeting held Feb. 21. Bob Tedesco, vice president of hotel operations, accepted the award on behalf of the resort.
The Community Pride Award recognizes Henderson citizens, businesses and groups that have improved the appearance of their neighborhoods or properties, or added to the beauty or cleanliness of Henderson. Winners have included homeowners, homeowners associations, businesses, and volunteers.
“Green Valley Ranch Resort and Spa has a history embracing sustainable practices while contributing to the City’s beauty and cleanliness,” said Doug Guild, Parks superintendent, City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department. “Members of the HCBC were especially impressed by the resort’s beautiful landscaping, which uses an efficient irrigation system that conserves water. The company also incorporates many sustainable practices into its daily operations, which includes recycling everything from cooking oil to batteries.”
