Good evening. I am Glenn A. Walsh, and I reside at 633 Royce Avenue in Mount Lebanon. I am Project Director of Friends of the Zeiss, which is working to preserve the historic equipment and artifacts of The Buhl Planetarium and Institute of Popular Science.

In the preliminary Fiscal Year 2003 budget of the Allegheny Regional Asset District, no money is appropriated for the proposed Pittsburgh Children's Museum and Center capital project. At this time, Friends of the Zeiss supports the decision of the RAD Board on this issue.

Thank you.
