As Wal-Mart and other big-box retailers ramp up efforts to open “supercenters” in California, many cities throughout the state have taken steps to enact ordinance’s tailored to ban these retail/grocery monstrosities.

TPR is pleased to present this interview with Cecilia Estolano, Special Assistant to the City Attorney and supervisor of the Real Estate and Economic Development Practice Group, to discuss how Los Angeles’ anti-suprecenter ordinance is taking shape.
