RESOLUTION NO. 011148

 

Honoring the All-America City Award Citizen Committee for its outstanding dedication and community service to Kansas City.

 

WHEREAS, the All-America City Award, sponsored by the National Civic League, is the most prestigious municipal award in the nation; and

 

WHEREAS, Kansas City, Missouri, was one of the 30 cities chosen as finalists in the All-America City competition. This recognition was based on an application prepared by a team of civic volunteers lead by co-chairmen Mike Burke and Frank Ellis; and

 

WHEREAS, the application, written by Jamie Green, then Management Associate for the City of Kansas City, focused on the Citys strengths and unique approach to municipal issues. Among the issues targeted in the application document were the Citys FOCUS (Forging Our Comprehensive Urban Strategy) Plan, the KC 150 celebrations, Brush Creek Community Partners and YouthFriends; and

 

WHEREAS, these programs, in addition to a number of other efforts of similar high quality (such as YouthNet, the bi-state effort to fund the renovation of Union Station, Kansas City Consensus, the Metropolitan Arts Council, Studio 150, the Mid-America Regional Council and the many generous philanthropies in the metropolitan area) reflect Kansas Citys commitment to the future for all residents of the City; and

 

WHEREAS, the All-America City Award Citizen Committee was comprised of people representing neighborhood groups, youth advocacy organizations, civic improvement groups, religious leaders, City employees and others who share a commitment to Kansas City and its continuing growth and development; and

 

WHEREAS, the optimism, dedication, effort and vision shared by members of this citizen committee is lauded and appreciated; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby honor the All-America City Award Citizen Committee for its outstanding dedication and community service to Kansas City; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that copies hereof be presented to the members of the All-America City Award Citizen Committee with the appreciation of the Mayor and Council for their civic spirt and devotion to the people of Kansas City.
