Forum to shape food truck rules

Post Date:10/30/2018

The City’s Planning & Development Services Department is hosting a food truck forum Monday evening to gather input from vendors about possible changes in the rules regulating their ventures.

The forum will be at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5, at the McNease Convention Center, 501 Rio Concho Drive. The gathering will also be broadcast live on the City of San Angelo-Public Information Facebook page and on SATV, Suddenlink channel 17. Questions and comments will be fielded live during the meeting via the City’s Facebook page and @CityofSanAngelo on Twitter.

City officials will be on hand Monday evening to discuss potentially allowing food trucks to operate on some properties zoned for residential use. Those might include public parks, churches and schools. City planners are also considering changes that would allow food trucks to operate in other zones – such as office commercial and light manufacturing – and would extend the amount of time a truck could stay in the public right-of-way serving food.

“We want to partner with our local food trucks to help them access areas in a safe and forward-thinking manner,” said Aaron Vannoy, Planning & Development administrator. “We’re seeking to make our processes easier and more widely known. This conversation will help guide where and how food trucks can operate to the benefit of all.”

Officials from the City’s Planning & Development Services, Parks and Recreation, and Health Services departments will be available to answer questions and receive suggestions.
