The proposed peddler-free zone would be bounded by Isabella Street, Ridge Avenue, Lincoln Street and Green Bay Road.

The restriction would be similar to ones already in place around the Evanston Township High School athletic field on game days and around elementary and secondary schools on school days.

The ban would apply to all sales of food and merchandise and would also ban selling or reselling of event tickets except by the event ticket office or a licensed ticket broker.
