SAN PEDRO (KNX 1070) — The Los Angeles City Council moves to rename a San Pedro housing project that has the same name as a notorious local gang.

“No one had ever brought it to my attention,” Councilwoman Janice Hahn said. “Actually, it was just something I thought about. You know, there wasn’t really a widespread, grassroots movement to change the name.”

KNX 1070’s Claudia Peschuitta reports that while Hahn had known for sometime that the Rancho San Pedro housing development shared its name with a local gang, a recent raid targeting the gang got her to take action.

“I thought it would be an opportunity. I don’t really remember ever doing this before… asking the Housing Authority to begin the process of working with the residents to come up with a new name,” Hahn added.
