Convention center, please go green

December 8, 2008

The [Nov. 17 Focus] article on Don Welsh, the new Indianapolis Convention & Visitors Association CEO, intrigued me. No mention was made on the use of green-building practices, so I submit the following thoughts:

Pittsburgh now offers the amazing new and competitive David L. Lawrence Convention Center as the first certified "green" convention center in the world. It is the only meeting venue to be awarded the Gold LEED certification.

We can now boast about our world-class airport. Wouldn't it be great to offer the new addition to the Convention Center as sustainable, along the lines of the Pittsburgh center? If not now, when?
