The Justice League of Street Food will throw another bash on Saturday, August 13
A vibrant street food community in Seattle is one step closer to becoming a reality.
The action got so heated last year that a Denver City Council committee held a hearing to consider the city's regulations regarding trucks.
Rivas annually pays $100,000 in rent for his Capitol Hill location, and worries food truck operators without similar financial burdens could undercut his prices.
The fervor over food trucks reached city council this morning, as people had their first opportunity to comment on proposed legislation that's intended to invigorate the city's mobile food scene.
A City Council committee has approved changed to the food truck ordinance that would allow them to operate in more areas of the city.
Although mobile food vendors are currently banned from the Central Business District (not including LoDo) except for areas along the 16th Street Mall, where vendors contract with the Denver Partnership, and in Skyline Park, where Parks and Rec allows some carts, most of the conversation stayed out of downtown itself.
Tomorrow's meeting, which starts at three, is "really just a working session for the food truck operators," Phetteplace says, "to learn what their vision for mobile food trucks is for the City and County of Denver."
By December, over 150 mobile food vendors had been licensed in Denver, which almost put the movement on par with the medical-marijuana dispensary business.
