 record owner, reasonable notice of actions to be taken on
the Property and shall use reasonable means, without
significant additional cost to the Grantor, to avoid and/or
minimize interference with the use of the Property.    Grantee
agrees that, notwithstanding any other provisions of this
Quitclaim Deed, the Grantor assumes no liability to the
Grantee, the then record owner, or any other person, should
remediation of the Property interfere with the Grantee's use

paragraph, the Grantee, the then record owner, and any other
person, shall have no claim solely on account of any such
interference resulting from actions taken under this
paragraph against the Grantor or any of its officers,
agents, employees or contractors.   This right of access
shall be forever binding on the Grantee, its successors and
assigns, and shall run with the land.

     3. PROPERTY CONVEYED "AS IS".

     Except as expressly provided for herein, the Property
is conveyed in an "as is" and "where is" condition, without
any representation or warranty whatsoever by the Grantor
concerning the state of repair or condition of said
Property.

     4. RESTRICTIVE COVENANT ON THE USE OF A PART OF THE
PROPERTY (PARCEL G AS SHOWN ON THE PLAT OF SURVEY ATTACHED
HERETO AS EXHIBIT "B" AND AS DESCRIBED IN ATTACHED EXHIBIT

restriction and the environmental restriction as set forth in
paragraph 6. of this Quitclaim Deed and shall be subject to the
notice of unexploded ordnance and the ordnance restriction as set
forth in paragraph 7. of this Quitclaim Deed.

      (b.) The land use restriction as set forth in this paragraph
shall be a covenant running with the land and shall be forever
binding upon the Grantee, its successors and assigns.

      (c.) The land use restriction as set forth in this paragraph
shall inure to the benefit of the public in general and the
territory surrounding the Property, including lands retained by
the United States of America, and therefore, is enforceable by
the Grantor.  The Grantor shall have the right to enforce the
above-referenced restriction by the initiation of appropriate
legal action or actions (e.g. a civil action to enjoin a
violation of the referenced restriction).   All reasonable costs
and expenses of the Grantor, including, but not limited to, court
costs, attorney fees or salaries, support staff salaries, travel

the status of the referenced restriction as binding upon the
Grantee, its successors and assigns.

     7. NOTICE OF UNEXPLODED ORDNANCE AND ORDNANCE
RESTRICTION.

      (a.) The Grantor completed a comprehensive record
search and, based on that search, has undertaken and
completed statistical testing, physical testing, and
ordnance removal on the Property.   The referenced areas were
searched and cleared of all unexploded ordnance reasonably
possible to detect to a depth of four feet (4.00') below the
surface of the ground, resulting in release of the
referenced areas for unrestricted use unless otherwise
specified in this paragraph.   No ordnance clearance was
conducted under the roadways located within the boundary of
the Property; under any buildings, structures, or facilities
located within the boundary of the Property; under the fish
pond located within the boundary of the Property
 (specifically, within the boundary of Parcel E-1); under any
running utility lines located within the boundary of the
Property; and within an area adjacent to the lake bluff
 (specifically, within the boundary of Parcel E-1) where
large amounts of reinforced concrete was found.   The
referenced lake bluff area is located within the boundary of
Parcel E-1; shall be referred to in this paragraph as Parcel
F; is shown on the plat of survey attached hereto as Exhibit
"B"; and is more particularly described in attached Exhibit
"E".   The Supplemental Statement Of Clearance For Fort
Sheridan, Illinois (dated, November 18, 1998), recommends
ordnance construction support prior to any surface or
subsurface excavation, digging, or drilling, or any other
disturbance of the surface or subsurface in the following
areas: under the roadways located within the boundary of the
Property; under any buildings, structures, or facilities
located within the boundary of the Property; under the fish
pond located within the boundary of the Property
 (specifically, within the boundary of Parcel E-1); under any
running utility lines located within the boundary of the
Property; and within the boundary of Parcel F.   Parcel G
was cleared to a depth of one foot (1.00') below ground
surface and no ordnance was found.   Consistent with the
above-referenced Supplemental Statement of Clearance For
Fort Sheridan, Illinois, ordnance construction support is
recommended prior to any permitted surface or subsurface


                                                            7
'ex'cavat'ion (specifically, landscaping actions or utility
construction actions) within the boundary of Parcel G. A
 copy of the above-referenced Supplemental Statement Of
Clearance For Fort Sheridan, Illinois is attached hereto and
is incorporated herein by reference as Exhibit "F".

      (b.) All permitted soil intrusive activities
(specifically, landscaping actions or utility construction
actions) within the boundary of Parcel G shall be consistent
with the environmental restriction as set forth in paragraph
6., subparagraph (e.), subpart (ii.) of this Quitclaim Deed.

      (c.) All soil intrusive activities under the roadways
located within the boundary of the Property; under any
buildings, structures, or facilities located within the
boundary of the Property; under the fish pond located within
the boundary of the Property (specifically, within the
boundary of Parcel E-1); under any running utility lines
located within the boundary of the Property; and within the
boundary of Parcel F shall be subject to the following
ordnance restriction:   The Grantee, its successors and
assigns, shall not conduct and shall not permit others to
conduct surface or subsurface excavation, digging, or
drilling, or any other disturbance of the surface or
subsurface under the roadways located within the boundary of
the Property; under any buildings, structures, or facilities
located within the boundary of the Property; under the fish
pond located within the boundary of the Property
 (specifically, within the boundary of Parcel E-1); under any
running utility lines located within the boundary of the
Property; and within the boundary of Parcel F without first
applying for, and receiving the written consent of the
Commander and District Engineer, United States Army Corps of
Engineers, Louisville District, C/O Commander and District
Engineer, United States Army Corps of Engineers, Louisville
District, ATTN: CELRL-RE, P.O. Box 59, Louisville, Kentucky
40201-0059, or his/her duly authorized representative.   The
Commander and District Engineer, United States Army Corps of
Engineers, Louisville District, or his/her duly authorized
representative, shall have the full right and authority to
impose any relevant soil intrusion conditions that will
insure the safety and protection of human life.

       (d.) Notwithstanding the record search, testing, and
clearance conducted by the Grantor, the parties acknowledge
that, due to the former use of the Property as an active
military installation, there is a possibility that
unexploded ordnance may exist on the Property.   Upon due
notice, the Grantor agrees to remove any such remaining
unexploded ordnance discovered on the Property, as required


                                                              8
under applicable laws and regulations, as expeditiously as
reasonable and practicable, subject to the availability of
funds.

     (e.) If the Grantee, any subsequent owner, or any other
person should find any unexploded ordnance on the Property,
they should not move or disturb the item and immediately
call the local police or local fire authorities and the
Commander and District Engineer, United States Army Corps of
Engineers, Louisville District, Louisville, Kentucky.

      (f.) The Grantee acknowledges receipt of the Final
Removal Report, Ordnance and Explosives Interim Removal and
Sampling Action, Fort Sheridan, Illinois, United States Army
Corps of Engineers Engineering and Support Center,
Huntsville, March 1997; the Final Removal Report, Ordnance,
Ammunition, and Explosives Time Critical Removal Action,
Human Factors Applications, Incorporated, May 1998; and the
Supplemental Statement Of Clearance For Fort Sheridan,
Illinois, U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center,
Huntsville, November 18, 1998.   The referenced documents
detail the past amount and type of unexploded ordnance found
on the Property and describe the unexploded ordnance cleanup
efforts conducted on the Property.   These and other
documents can also be found in the Administrative Record for
the Property.

      (g.) The ordnance restriction as set forth in this paragraph
shall be a covenant running with the land and shall be forever
binding upon the Grantee, its successors and assigns.

      (h.) The ordnance restriction as set forth in this paragraph
shall inure to the benefit of the public in general and the
territory surrounding the Property, including lands retained by
the United States of America, and therefore is enforceable by the
Grantor.   The Grantor shall have the right to enforce the above-
referenced restriction by the initiation of appropriate legal
action or actions (e.g. a civil action to enjoin a violation of
the referenced restriction).   All reasonable costs and expenses
of the Grantor, including, but not limited to, court costs,
attorney fees or salaries, support staff salaries, travel and per
diem costs shall be paid by the Grantee or its successors in
interest to the Property or any part thereof.

      (i.) The Grantee, its successors and assigns, shall
include the ordnance restriction as set forth in this
paragraph in all subsequent lease, transfer, or conveyance
documents which include all or any part of the Property.
Notwithstanding this provision, failure to include the
ordnance restriction as set forth in this paragraph in all


                                                             9
subsequent lease, transfer, or conveyance documents which
include all or any part of the Property shall not abrogate
the status of the referenced restriction as binding upon the
Grantee, its successors and assigns.

     8. CERCLA NOTICE AND COVENANT.

     Pursuant to Section 120 (h) (3) of the Comprehensive
Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, as
amended, 42 U.S.C. Section 9601 et seq. ("CERCLA"):

     NOTICE: The Grantor hereby notifies the Grantee of the
storage, release and disposal of hazardous substances on the
Property.  For the purposes of this Quitclaim Deed,
"hazardous substances" shall have the same meaning as
Section 101 (14) of CERCLA. Available information regarding
the type, quantity, and location of such substances and the
actions taken is set forth in attached Exhibit "G". More
detailed information regarding the storage, release, and
disposal of hazardous substances on the Property has been
provided to the Grantee in the "Fort Sheridan Landfill 2/38-
Acre Parcel Environmental Baseline Survey," (dated, August,
1999), the receipt of which the Grantee hereby acknowledges.

     COVENANT: The Grantor hereby covenants that:

      (a.) all remedial action necessary to protect human
health and the environment with respect to any such
substance remaining on the Property has been taken before
the date of such transfer; and

      (b.) any additional remedial action found to be
necessary with regard to such hazardous substances remaining
on the Property after the date of such transfer shall be
conducted by the Grantor.   However, if the hazardous
substance(s) remaining on the Property is not consistent
with the past United States Department of the Army usage of
the Property, it will not be the responsibility of the
Grantor to conduct further remediation.   This covenant shall
not apply in any case in which the person or entity to whom
the Property is transferred is a potentially responsible
party under CERCLA with respect to the Property immediately
prior to the time of transfer.   For purposes of this
subpart, the Grantor hereby consents that the previous
tenancy of the Grantee as to a portion of the Property
leased to the Grantee will not cause the Grantee to be a
potentially responsible party under CERCLA solely because of
such tenancy status.




                                                            10
     9. HISTORIC PRESERVATION.

      (a.) The Grantee, its successors and assigns, shall
comply with applicable provisions of Attachments D and E to
the Programmatic Agreement among the Advisory Council on
Historic Preservation, the Grantor, and the Illinois State
Historic Preservation Office, dated July 1995, attached to
the MOA as Exhibit E, as the same relates to the ravines
within the Property that are eligible for inclusion on the
National Register of Historic Places.

     (b.) In consideration of the Property, the Grantee
hereby covenants on behalf of itself, its heirs, successors,
and assigns at all times to the United States Department of
the Army and the Illinois State Historic Preservation
Officer to protect archaeological resources by carrying out
measures as follows:

      (i.) No disturbance of the ground surface or any other
thing shall be undertaken or permitted to be undertaken on
any archaeological site determined by the Illinois State
Historic Preservation Officer to be eligible for inclusion
in the National Register of Historic Places which would
affect the physical integrity of such site without the
express prior written permission of the Illinois State
Historic Preservation Officer, signed by a fully authorized
representative thereof.   Should the Illinois State Historic
Preservation Officer require, as a condition of the granting
of such permission, that the Grantee conduct archaeological
data recovery operations or other activities designed to
mitigate the adverse effect of the proposed activity on the
archaeological site, the Grantee shall at its own expense
conduct such activities in accordance with the Secretary of
the Interior's Standards and Guidelines for Archaeological
Documentation (48 FR 44734-37) and such standards and
guidelines as the Illinois State Historic Preservation
Officer may specify, including but not limited to standards
and guidelines for research design, conduct of field work,
conduct of analysis, preparation and dissemination of
reports, disposition of artifacts and other materials,
consultation with Native American or other organizations,
and reinterment of human remains.

      (ii.) Grantee shall make every reasonable effort to
prohibit any person from vandalizing or otherwise disturbing
any archaeological site determined by the Illinois State
Historic Preservation Officer to be eligible for inclusion
in the National Register of Historic Places.




                                                          11
     (iii.) The Illinois State Historic Preservation Officer
shall be permitted at all reasonable times to inspect the
Property in order to ascertain if the above conditions are
being observed.

      (iv.) In the event of a violation of this covenant, and
in addition to any remedy now or hereafter provided by law,
the Illinois State Historic Preservation Officer may,
following reasonable notice to Grantee, institute suit to
enjoin said violation or to require the restoration of any
archaeological site affected by such violation.   The

        Dear Mr. Fuglsang:

               You and I have attempted to contact each other on a variety of occasions relative to this
        matter. As I advised you on your voice mail, none of the property acquired by the Forest
        Preserve District lies within the municipal boundaries of the City of Highwood. Therefore, the
        exemption is not required.

                                                                        Very truly yours,

                                                        LAW OFFICES 0
