Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

Thank you so much. My name is Janet Milkman. I'm the Executive Director of the Delaware Valley Green Building Council. We're the local chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council, and on behalf of both organizations, I want to thank the City Council, Council President Clarke, Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown, and all of you here today for this wonderful recognition.

This conference is coming to Philadelphia for the first time ever. We want it to come back. It's going to bring over $32 million in revenue to our city and will be a fantastic opportunity to showcase all of the amazing sustainability work that's happening in our region. There will be 35 green building tours of affordable housing, of commercial office buildings, of cultural institutions like the Curtis Institute and the Barnes Foundation and the Franklin Institute. It will be an incredible opportunity to show everyone how great Philadelphia and our region is and what a leader we are in sustainability.

So thank you again. We hope to see all of you at the Convention Center next week.
