Transportation center gets Zarian stamp

Family members and local officials unveiled a new sign Wednesday at Glendale’s Transportation Center in honor of former Mayor Larry Zarian, who died in October.

The Amtrak and Metrolink rail station at 400 W. Cerritos Ave. was dubbed the Larry Zarian Transportation Center, honoring the former Glendale mayor’s extensive involvement in transportation issues.

The 16-year councilman also served on the board of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority and as a state transportation commissioner.

He died earlier this year of blood cancer at 73.
