City of Knoxville to hold public meeting on mobile food vendor pilot program


KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The City of Knoxville is holding a public meeting Wednesday to discuss a one-year pilot program for mobile food vendors.

The city also posted details about the program to its website, including a full set of regulations, a map of food truck zones and the permit form.

City Business Liaison Patricia Robledo developed the program with an advisory board includingrepresentatives of the local mobile food vendor organization, localrestaurants, and many City of Knoxville departments.

Under the program, mobile food vendors would need to apply for a permit and pay a $500 application fee.

They would only be able to operate in marked spaces along downtown streets in seven locations at specified times of the day or in designated parking areas on appropriately zoned private property with permission of the property owner.

Mobile trucks would not be able to operate in residential zones.

The program was partly based on a similar programalready operating in Nashville.

Members of the public are welcome to attend a meeting Wednesday, March 12, to get more information or provide feedback.

The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Southern Depot, 318 W. Depot Avenue.
