Following Ben Joravsky's commentary on the city's plan for the old main post office (The Works, May 25) is an item stating the need for an indoor track and field facility. Hmmm. The solution is obvious: put the athletic facility into the old building. There should be plenty of room left for condos, a hotel, or even an indoor velodrome. Besides a TIF, some funds could be raised by leasing billboards on the building.
