Council To Consider Fast-Food Restaurant Ban in South Central

Hosted by

LA City Councilwoman Jan Perry wants to ban new fast-food restaurants in 32 square miles of Los Angeles—including Watts, the Crenshaw District and Baldwin Hills. The LA Business Journal calls it “the largest Big Mac attack the nation has ever seen.”  Calistoga up in the wine country and Concord, Massachusetts have done it, but it’s never been tried before on this scale.
