DEAL CLOSE TO RENAME AIRPORT AFTER HOPE.

Byline: Naush Boghossian Staff Writer

BURBANK - The Burbank Airport Authority entered into an agreement Monday with Bob Hope Enterprises Inc. for the right to name the airport after the legendary entertainer.

More than three months after Hope's death, his family has granted the airport permission to use his name, and the proposal will go to the Pasadena, Burbank and Glendale city councils for approval.

``This was a step in moving the process forward,'' said airport spokesman Victor Gill. ``Today's action was adopting and entering into an agreement with Hope Enterprises.''

Each city council must vote to amend the joint powers agreement that governs the airport in order to finalize a name change.

The Bob Hope name is a trademark that is governed by contractual obligations; use of the name is controlled by Hope Enterprises, Gill said.

Hope's family is pleased at the prospect of the airport name change moving forward.

``He really called this airport home, and I know somewhere he is up there looking down and would be very happy about the possibility of this happening, and I know he would be honored,'' said Linda Hope, Bob Hope's daughter, who appeared before the Airport Authority on Monday.
