he Urban County Council has unanimously approved a six-month pilot project allowing food trucks to set up in public street parking spaces.
Food truck vendors say new restrictions to the city’s proposed Food Truck Pilot Program being considered by the Lexington Parking Authority tomorrow would take some of the most profitable areas zoned for food trucks off the table.
The regulation changes stem from the Parking Authority's efforts to clarify its role in regulating food trucks that park in metered parking zones. For the past two weeks, the Parking Authority has been researching data on the occupancy rate of downtown parking spaces. That process delayed the Urban County Council's final reading on a proposed six-month pilot project for food trucks on downtown streets.
Lexington’s pilot food truck program may have cleared first reading at the Urban County Council, but a host of details including parking time limits and fines remain to be finalized by the city’s parking authority.
The parking authority discussed setting the maximum time in a metered space at four hours per day, per zone. Food vendors would be required to call the parking authority to say where their trucks would be set up that day. Food trucks could occupy no more than 50 percent of the metered spaces.
