Dear Mr. Hines:

Under the provisions of the New York Freedom of Information Law, Article 6 of the Public Officers Law, I hereby request a copy of all records or portions thereof pertaining to, or containing the following:

1) The ground lease executed between the University at Buffalo and the UBF Faculty-Student Housing Corp dated August 24, 1998 for the Hadley Village Apartments project.

2) The ground lease executed between the University at Buffalo and the UB Alumni Association, Inc dated June 1, 2000 for the South Lake Village Apartments project.

3) The ground lease executed between the University at Buffalo and the UB Alumni Association, Inc dated October 1, 2000 for the Flint Village Apartments project.

4) The ground lease executed between the University at Buffalo and the UB Alumni Association dated August 1, 2001 for the Creekside Village Apartments project.

5) The ground lease executed between the University at Buffalo and the UB Alumni Association, Inc dated December 1, 2008 for the William R Greiner Residence Hall project.

I understand that there is a fee of $0.25 per page for duplication of the records requested; however, this request is a matter of public concern and is not being made for commercial usage. As such, I request that any fees associated with providing requested records be waived. I also request that documents be provided in electronic format if at all possible. Doing so would eliminate the need to copy the materials and provides another basis for my requested fee waiver.

If, however, such a waiver is denied, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request.

As you know, the Freedom of Information Law requires that an agency respond to a request within five (5) business days of receipt of such request. Therefore, I would appreciate a response as soon as possible.

If you determine that some but not all of the information is exempt from disclosure and that you intend to withhold it, I ask that you redact it for the time being and make the rest available as requested. In any event, please provide a notification citing the legal authorities on which you rely if you determine that any or all of the information is exempt and will not be disclosed.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter; I look forward to hearing from you shortly.

Sincerely,

Robert Galbraith
