To Whom It May Concern:



††††††††††† I wish to add my voice in asking that you vote to make The Buhl Planetarium and Institute of Popular Science to be a city designated historic structure.Millions of people have graced its doors since itís opening in 1939.It was and is a legacy left by the estate of the late department store founder Henry Buhl, Jr., an entrepreneur, who did so much for the City of Pittsburgh.It is a wonderful drawing card to come and visit Pittsburgh and see this magnificent building.There are not many other cities in the United States that can boast of having such a historic planetarium.I hope you will consider making this a city designated historic structure.Thank you.
