“This recognition speaks directly to the City’s long-standing commitment to being clean and green.

Snipes.

“Initiatives through our Forestry and Parks programs, collaborations with our citizens and volunteers, and annual events with stakeholders such as Missouri City Green will help us maintain this distinction for years to come.”
