Post office to be named after Hope
BURBANK VILLAGE -- The U.S. House of Representatives this week
unanimously passed legislation to name the Olive Avenue post office
for legendary entertainer Bob Hope.
The bill, introduced last month by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank)
and Rep. Howard Berman (D-Van Nuys), was passed Tuesday. Hope, a
Toluca Lake resident who contributed much to Burbank, died July 27 at
the age of 100.
“An honorary veteran, Bob Hope’s legacy will be that of a wartime
and peacetime soldier, always fighting to bring a smile and a piece
of home to U.S. troops around the world,” Schiff said in a prepared
statement. “I am pleased that my colleagues have joined [Rep.] Berman
and me in honoring Bob Hope.
The bill renames the post office at 135 E. Olive Ave. “The Bob
Hope Post Office Building.”
