More than 300 people have signed a Change.org petition urging the company to bring the stand, which is touring the United States to promote new episodes of the comedy series, to the city where most of its action takes place.
Since Newport resident Krupali Tejura launched the campaign Tuesday, even Mayor Keith Curry has pledged support to bring Bluth's Original Frozen Banana stand to town. But the company representative, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Netflix has no plans to do so.
She noted, though, that the tour schedule is not yet final. The "Arrested Development" Twitter feed has posted updates on the stand's appearances, and the spokeswoman said Los Angeles is slotted for the near future.
