I know readers are always interested in station naming news — and there are two station naming motions before the Metro Board of Directors this month:
•To rename the Gold Line’s East Los Angeles Civic Center Station the East Los Angeles Civic Center/Gloria Molina Station.
•To rename the Red Line’s North Hollywood Station the North Hollywood/Zev Yaroslavsky Station.
The motions are posted above. They were authored by Metro Board Members Ara Najarian and Pam O’Connor. The Board’s Construction Committee approved the motions this morning and the full Board will consider them at its Oct. 2 meeting.
Here is Metro’s property naming policy. It’s worth noting that even when station names are named after people, the geographic names are the ones commonly used in announcements on buses and trains and on maps and agency literature.
