The City Council’s Public Safety, Health and Human Services committee will be meeting Tuesday night (5:30 pm, room 209) to consider some adjustments to the ordinance that regulate food trucks in Portland. The specific changes under consideration are:
- Open a variety of city parks to use by a limited number of food trucks based on a RFP process.
- Allow food trucks to operate in Monument Square on some specific days of the week
- Create designated parking spaces for food trucks similar to the Uhaul rental spaces that already exist
- Allow food trucks to park in metered spots anywhere in the city after 6pm
Update: the Press Herald published an article on Tuesday about the requests before the subcommittee.
