Dear Mr. Hildebrand,

It was a pleasure speaking with you today and thank you for sending the telefax containing the
announcement for The Brownfields Center. As discussed, I would welcome the opportunity to visit with
you and your colleagues in northwest Pennsylvania to share some of the activities and efforts of The
Brownfields Center. Please let me know of the possible arrangements.

During the past two years, a group of interdisciplinary faculty at Carnegie Mellon University and the
University of Pittsburgh has been working on the issue of brownfields revitalization. This work has
included the issues of Brownfields and Infrastructure (NSF supported), the Regional Industrial Site
Evaluation System (RISES - supported by the Heinz Foundation) and the Nine Mile Run Project (also
supported by the Heinz Foundation). Recently, we decided to pull the threads of this work together under a
common roof -- we have therefore, created "The Brownfields Center" (TBC), as a cooperative venture
between Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh. TBC is helping to promote regional
brownfield development by understanding the processes that support the revitalization of these
underutilized sites and conveying that understanding to potential stakeholders. The potential economic,
social and environmental benefits of brownfields are great, relating directly to the issue of sustainable
development.

Enclosed please find a package of TBC information including newsletters, a slide presentation and copies
of recent media articles. We appreciate your interest in the activities of TBC and we will keep you updated
with our monthly newsletters. However, if you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to call
me at (412) 268-7121.

Respectfully,


Deborah A. Lange
Executive Director
The Brownfields Center
