With proper design and management, mobile food vending can be a great way to add vitality to the street, encourage walking, and promote local economic development.

In response to increasing local interest in mobile food carts and food trucks as a business opportunity, the City’s Planning and Development Services Department is leading an effort to research, evaluate and develop a system to better support and provide regulations for mobile food vendors on public rights of way and as a transitory use on private parcels.

The open house was for the purpose of discussing ideas and generating comments on possible changes to City code that could create a more consistent, predictable and stream‐lined system for the local mobile food vendor industry.

For more information read the following documents prepared by the Spokane City Planning and Development Services Department.  If you wish to give the city feedback do so as soon as possible as decisions are being made now.
