PASADENA — On Wednesday Morning, March 27, 2013, members of the Armenian Community Coalition in Pasadena met with Pasadena City officials regarding the submission of a design for the Armenian Genocide Memorial in Memorial Park. This was the second meeting between said parties.

Among the city officials attending the meeting were Siobhan Foster, Director of Public Works, Daniel A. Rix, City Engineer, and Loren Pluth, Project Manager for Parks and Landscape.

Also present at the meeting was the monument designer Vahram Hovagimyan, who introduced himself and gave a brief description of the features of the design and its contents.

The design and its features were warmly welcomed and then Mr. Pluth, Project Manager for Parks and Landscape, asked that we also submit specific proposals about the landscape around the monument.

The meeting was cordial and the discussion centered on the purpose of the monument, which was to point out “man’s inhumanity against man”. Also constructive concerns were raised about the maintenance and the upkeep of the monument, so it would be a lasting one.

The Armenian Community Coalition of Pasadena hopes to have this project realized by the year 2015, which coincides with the Centennial of the Twentieth Century’s First Genocide.
