Mobile vendors are permitted in the City under municipal code section 17.10.380. The application to become a licensed vendor can be found here. The application and associated $50 fee (plus tax) should be returned to the City's Economic Development + Planning Department for review.
Successfully permitted mobile vendors are allowed to operate as an accessory use on private property in any non-residential zoning district with the authorization of the property owner. A permit is valid during its calendar year of issue. (For example, a permit issued in May 2016 will expire December 31, 2016.)
The City Council, working with local community members, city administration, and the Planning & Zoning Commission recently created this new, streamlined process designed with an emphasis on the needs of mobile vendors. For more information, read the relevant section of code or contact City Hall.
