HOLLYWOOD — Food trucks might be causing political heartburn in some cities — but not Hollywood.
Every Monday, more than 20 food trucks roll into Hollywood’s ArtsPark at Young Circle, selling everything from shrimp tacos to gourmet cake pops. The weekly event has taken off since its debut in August 2011, drawing hundreds of food truck fans from all over South Florida.
This week, Commissioner Peter Hernandez said he has a plan that might encourage even more people to meander through downtown, stopping at the local bars, restaurants and shops.
He’d like to see six food trucks selling their gourmet creations at nearby Anniversary Park, two blocks west of Young Circle on Hollywood Boulevard.
“I’m trying to come up with innovative ways to boost the economy of downtown Hollywood,” he said.
