Alexandria's food truck program officially begins Tuesday.
The Alexandria City Council adopted a pilot program May 17 that will allow food trucks to operate in off-street locations on public and private property. The program will run through October 31, 2015, to introduce food trucks on a limited basis so the city can evaluate the program.
Last week, the City Manager adopted regulations, developed with community input, to administer the program and establish policy on food truck vending in public parks and recreation centers.
The regs went through a public comment period, both online and at a public hearing. Last Tuesday, City Council reviewed and approved the draft regulations, authorizing the City Manager to finalize them for the July 1 program start date. To view the regulations, visit alexandriava.gov/FoodTrucks.
To provide food truck owners with "one stop shopping" to obtain the permits and inspections needed to operate, the City will host a Food Truck Registration Kick Off Event on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the City’s Permit Center, located at 301 King St., Suite 4200.
