Selection Letter from David Gardiner to Chuck Williams


November 13, 1995

Chuck Williams, Commissioner
Minnesota Pollution Control Agency
520 Lafayette Rd. N
St. Paul, Minnesota 55155-4194

Dear Commissioner Williams:

I am pleased to inform you that your proposal to conduct a state-level Project XL pilot in Minnesota has been selected to enter the development phase of the XL process. Project XL was developed to test innovative environmental management strategies and, through this process, nurture "eXcellence and Leadership" in environmental protection. Your proposal is among the first selected because we believe it shows great potential to accomplish those goals by looking at activities within an entire state. We are excited to begin working with you to forge a partnership that leads to a new era of environmental protection.

We recognize that a partnership of this nature requires establishing new ground rules in our relationships. We look forward to developing a model with you that could be replicated by other states. You will be contacted very soon by Shirley Mitchell from EPA Region V to begin discussing the next steps.

We are pleased to be working with you in a process that holds such promise for the future of environmental protection.


David Gardiner
Assistant Administrator
