City Council committee approves new food truck locations

Food trucks would operate from nine new areas in the city under a measure approved by the City Council Committee on Pedestrian and Traffic Safety on Monday. The measure would increase the number of designated food truck locations in the city to 30.

Food trucks would be able to prepare and serve food on board while parked in any of the proposed locations for up to two hours. The city already has 21 designated food truck areas, and food trucks are also allowed to park in any legal metered parking space that is at least 200 feet from a brick-and-mortar restaurant.
