Legislation Aims to Free Up Food Trucks
Philadelphia City Councilman Mark Squilla has introduced two bills to loosen the city’s regulations of food trucks. The bills would allow food trucks to legally vend on private property and to vend in areas zoned for high density commercial use (CMX-4 and CMX-5 for the zoning geeks) and industrial lots as well.
The bills will also separate mobile food vendors out of the city’s definition of street vendor, which also regulates any “peddler”, “hawker”, “huckster” or “transient vendor.” This will allow future bills to legislate (and free up) mobile food vendors directly.
