Food trucks have become increasingly popular in recent years and can be complicated from a regulatory standpoint (vehicles and food services establishments). The city is interested in evaluating and developing citywide food truck best practices. This program would include any nuanced differences between centers (Downtown, Crossroads, Factoria) as well as special events. Development of best practices for how to frame the regulatory aspects, such as temporary merchants, permanent mobile locations or semi-frequent locations. Best practices would include practices for obtaining business licenses, permitting, health department requirements, and evaluation of potential costs to both vendors and the city.
