  • Post of the Day: Food Vendors Downtown?

    SW MI Planner writes:

    I am working on an ordinance to allow transient food vendors in our downtown area, both non-motorized push carts, stationary trailers, etc. Anyone have any good examples of best practices, thoughts on what not to do, etc.? Do you allow them? Are they restrictied to private/public property, hours of operation, distance from existing bricks/mortar businesses? What about transient merchants of general merchandise/wares - do you allow them or no?
