Rename Alexander Street to Tigranakert Street

Glendale is a city in Los Angeles County California that has a big community of Armenians. We appreciate the building of Armenian Churches and establishments not only in Glendale, but in Los Angeles County as well. To preserve our identity we would like to rename a small street in Glendale as Tigranakert. The reason we would like this is to preserve our identity and keep a piece of Armenian history alive. Tigran the great is buried in an area taken by Turkey from Armenia. Tigranes was a respected king among the Armenian people, but the ruins of his tomb now lie in Turkey which is an enemy nation to the Armenian people. Renaming a small street like Alexander.St Tigranakert.Street will almost give us a sense of a new Tigranakert in a way and it will be highly appreciated by the Armenian community and the tolerant society of the USA which is known for embracing it's diverse blend of cultures.
