When a South Los Angeles coalition began its petition drive to "Rebuild South Central Without Liquor Stores," they hoped to collect 1,000 signatures by Aug. 1. By midday Sunday--five weeks after they began--they had 25,700 names, and the numbers were climbing. "Keep liquor stores that were burned down from being rebuilt," volunteer Jacqueline Hills, 16, a high school student, called out to parishioners at the First African Methodist Episcopal Church as they left morning services.

A state appeals court has upheld the city of Los Angeles' post-riot crackdown on liquor stores, rejecting an appeal filed by the Korean American Legal Advocacy Foundation on behalf of merchants whose stores suffered damage in 1992. Responding to a neighborhood outcry, the city imposed conditions on the rebuilding of damaged liquor stores. Merchants filed suit in an attempt to block the regulations that they argued were outside the city's jurisdiction.

The city Planning Commission approved an unprecedented ordinance Thursday that would allow the panel to deny permits to owners who want to rebuild liquor stores destroyed in last year's riots. Under the proposed ordinance, the commission can deny a rebuilding permit unless the store is deemed "desirable" and appropriate for the neighborhood. The business also must "not be materially detrimental" to the area, according to the proposal.

To the applause of a standing-room-only audience, the San Fernando City Council on Monday unanimously endorsed an ordinance curtailing liquor sales. The measure prohibits new liquor stores from setting up shop until the city's current population of 23,000 almost doubles. Since last July, residents have urged the city to implement its land-use power to halt the proliferation of liquor outlets. The city has 32 liquor stores and markets and 23 bars and restaurants within its 2.
