RESOLUTION NO. 051200

 

Honoring Anita B. Gorman on the renaming of the Discovery Center to be called the Anita B. Gorman Conservation Discovery Center.

 

WHEREAS, in honor of Anita Gormans key roll in making the Center a reality and her 12 years of remarkable service on behalf of the conservation interests of Missouri citizens, the Missouri Conservation Commission renamed the Discovery Center to be called the Anita B. Gorman Conservation Discovery Center; and

 

WHEREAS, Anita Gorman, serving as a Commissioner on the Missouri Conservation Commission has had many statewide accomplishments which include negotiating the purchase of a 4,468 acre Columbia Bottoms Conservation area, promoting efforts to set aside flood-damaged land in the Missouri River floodplain for fish, wildlife, forestry and recreation, helping found the non-profit Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation that provides financial support for conservation projects, forging numerous productive partnerships with the Kansas City Zoo, Powell Gardens, Kansas City Parks and Recreation, The Learning Exchange, EarthWorks and the Port Authority, and was instrumental in helping to assure hunter safety by getting the much needed and popular Parma Woods Outdoor Education Center and Shooting Range in place in Platte County; and

 

WHEREAS, Anita Gorman has shown boundless enthusiasm and tireless devotion to the Discovery Center project and without her inspiring and steadfast leadership the Center might never have happened; and

 

WHEREAS, the Anita B. Gorman Conservation Discovery Center is a symbol of her commitment to the state, the city and most of all to the children who come to learn outdoor skills that will help them enjoy, appreciate and conserve the outdoors; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby honor Anita B. Gorman on the renaming of the Discovery Center to be called the Anita B. Gorman Conservation Discovery Center; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that a copy hereof be presented to Anita B.
