RESOLUTION NO. 010212

 

Congratulating Thomas R. Bean, AIA/KC 2000 President, for his exemplary commitment to architecture and public art in Kansas City and in particular for his efforts leading to the publication of the American Institute of Architects Guide to Kansas Citys Architecture and Public Art.

 

WHEREAS, Thomas R. Bean has been City Architect since 1980 and has continuously demonstrated his commitment to architecture and public art in Kansas City; and

 

WHEREAS, Thomas R. Bean during his distinguished tenure as City Architect has championed the importance of Kansas Citys Architecture and Public Art in identifying the Citys character and providing a view to our rich past and our prosperous future; and

 

WHEREAS, Thomas R. Bean has observed that since 1979, when the last Guide to Architecture in Kansas City was published, Kansas City has experienced investment in new architecture and public art while sadly losing some important and spectacular architecture in the City; and

WHEREAS, through Thomas R. Beans zealous efforts, contributions for the Guide totaling $180,000.00 were received and new research and photography covering 20 years was completed, culminating in the publication and delivery of a new American Institute of Architects Guide to Kansas Citys Architecture and Public Art by December 2000; and

 

WHEREAS, through Thomas R. Beans unselfish efforts the citizens of Kansas City now enjoy a wonderful guide to their architecture and public art that has preserved these treasures for educators, the public and professionals across the United States; NOW THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby congratulate Thomas R. Bean, AIA, on his exemplary efforts which led to the publication of the American Institute of Architects Guide to Kansas Citys Architecture and Public Art; 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 Thomas R. Bean, AIA, head of the Architectural Division in appreciation of these efforts and his outstanding performance.
