Food Zoning

Standard

The Los Angeles City Council has passed an ordinance prohibiting construction of new fast-food restaurants in a 32-square-mile area inhabited by 500,000 low-income people. Most will argue against this ban as a denial of food choice to people who can most afford it. Health risks notwithstanding, I too hadn’t expected the U.S. to pass such a choice-restricting ordinance [source].
