SPRINGDALE, Ark. (KFTA) — The City of Springdale is looking at ways for food truck courts to operate under certain standards.
On Wednesday night the Springdale Planning Commission held a public hearing about what regulations would be necessary to allow between three and ten food trucks like this one to operate at a certain location.
That location has not yet been determined.
The city would require food truck operators to apply for a permit and meet the city requirements for water, power, trash pick up, paved parking, and restroom facilities.
Right now there are several food trucks in Springdale and they can stay in one area for up to three hours.
“It doesn’t affect those who want to be on a site for three hours or less or wants to set up on a specific site, and we have conditional use permit for those. This is just to create a whole different way for food truck to be congregated in one area,” Patsy Christie, Director of the Springdale Planning Department said.
Food truck owners must also abide by state and federal regulations regarding food service.
The Springdale Planning Commission will vote on these regulations during the next meeting on February 5.
