What Would You Ban in Back Bay?

A number of surrounding communities have deep-sixed some interesting items and activities over the past year, but should the neighborhood join the banning bandwagon?

Concord’s so-called bottle ban became a bylaw earlier this month, Brookline recently banned plastic bags and Styrofoam cups, and Arlington’s Town Meeting this fall upheld a seasonal leaf blower ban. Meanwhile, home-cooked foods have been forced out of many schools, an ostensible attempt to protect against allergies and childhood obesity.

Back Bay hasn’t exactly hopped on this banning bandwagon, but should it?

Is there an activity or item you would want to see banned out of environmental, health or quality-of-life concerns? Let us know in the comments section below.

How about banning guns; establish "gun free" zones or buildings? It worked well for cigarette smoking.
