First Bicentennial Green Legacy Community award presented to Robin Run VIllage
Indianapolis, September 14, 2013 Robin Run Village, located in NW Indianapolis at 5354 West 62nd Street, was recognized, during its annual Village Fair, for fulfilling the requirements of a platinum-level Bicentennial Green Legacy Community; the first senior community in Indiana to be recognized for this award.
The award, created by Sustainable Indiana 2016, is based on an accumulation of points earned by the Village’s administration and community residents for initiating green practices toward a sustainable community. One hundred institutional points were accrued for water conservation, green jobs, electric and fuel efficiency, landfill waste reduction and landscape amenities. Individual residents matched each institutional point with practices like recycling, gardening, home insulation, eating less meat, choosing the IPL Green Power Option and shopping at local farmers markets.
Sustainable Indiana 2016’s State Coordinator, John Gibson, presented the award plaque to the Village’s CEO, David Pruett, during the annual Village Fair on September 14th. Green Team Chair, Bob Glass, and President of the Resident Council, John Stemple, also participated in the recognition ceremony.
Robin Run Village is a full-service, life-care senior living campus with nearly 500 residents and 250 employees. More information is available at Brookdale Living.
