Architect Emilio Padilla was appointed to the Historic Preservation Committee at the city council meeting on March 25th.
“Emillo’s resume is quite impressive and he will do a fine job at his commission,” said Mayor of Berwyn Robert Lovero.
Padilla was sworn into office by city clerk Thomas Pavilk. Following being sworn in he posed for pictures with the mayor.
He currently works for BauerLatoza Studio. The company was founded in 1990 and has received over 30 design awards.
According to his resume Padilla, “specializes in exterior building envelope, adaptive reuse design and construction administration.”
Padilla replaced Lori Thielen, the committee’s chairman and commissioner.
“I am resigning to attend to some long-time deferred personal pursuits,” said Thielen in her resignation letter to the mayor.
At the Monday meeting the council accepted “with regret” the resignation of Thielen and wished her the “best of luck with her future endeavors.”
