The debate over whether to build a new convention center was far from over when this episode of A Quiet Crisis aired in 2003. But, we asked, is that the only major project that will have any real impact on our local economy? Were there any other so called “Big Bets” that needed to be considered? A Quiet Crisis: Big Bets addressed the continued debate over whether or not to build a new convention center; and explored other “Big Bet” development projects.
