Riverton is the rendezvous community of Wyoming.
Riverton is the rendezvous community of Wyoming past, present, and future. For centuries, people have chosen the Wind River Valley as a place to come together. It started with the Native Americans who felt it was a special place. Mountain men, prospectors, and homesteaders followed.
That rendezvous tradition continues today with a strong sense of civic pride in a friendly, enthusiastic, and progressive community with an unsurpassed quality of life.
Those qualities that we wish to maintain and enhance include:
- Cultural, recreational, and educational opportunities
- Economic diversity
- Clean and attractive appearance
- Crime-free community
- Technologically competitive
- Opportunities for sustained, healthy growth
- Strong family values
- Intergovernmental cooperation
- Volunteer spirit - "can do" attitude
The challenge before us is to preserve, and pass on to our future generations, our cherished way of life.
It is the mission of the City of Riverton employees to work together as a team to provide all citizens and visitors of our rendezvous community with a responsive, courteous, and effective city government.
"Excellence in service to the Rendezvous City"
