"In the past, Columbia's efforts at comprehensive planning and ourability to work with our neighbors has been hampered by incomplete information and differing levels of knowledge... This work is intended both to give us a framework for future decisions and much-needed baseline information concerning our existing facilities, particularly the buildings we own off-campus. I feel certain that the group we have assembled will give us an outstanding work product for the benefit of the University and the entire neighborhood." (Columbia Press Release 9/23/96)
