Background and previous stories about Fresh & Easy coming to Leimert and Crenshaw
Comment by enhager on December 1, 2010 at 5:28pm
Tanisha said that there is an appeal in opposition to the development of the store that was filed by a group called HOPE. They apparently are a part of the Park Mesa Neighborhood Council, even though the President of the Council is in full support of the supermarket.

Tanshia said that the Communty Health Council "is only concerned with bringing fresh and affordable foods into our community and since Fresh & Easy is the only grocer willing to come into the area, we have decided to support them in any way we can."
