Developing a Sidewalk Vending Policy for a Diverse City
Posted by Councilmember Englander on December 16, 2016 at 2:09 PM
This week, I spoke at the Public Works and Gang Reduction Committee to provide input on the pending Citywide Street Vending policy.
While I have seen and experienced successful street vending in many cities, and recognize its ability to enhance cultural experiences and provide economic opportunities for entrepreneurs, a one-size-fits-all street vending policy does not work in a City as diverse as Los Angeles.
Council District 12 is home to the largest contiguous industrial corridor in the City of Los Angeles and, with the Granada Hills Grub Fest, we are also home to the largest regular gathering of food trucks in the City of Los Angeles.
Through the Grub Fest, Reseda Blvd Great Streets Program, and many other similar community gatherings, my office has worked with local businesses, Neighborhood Councils, Chambers of Commerce, food trucks, and community stakeholders to mediate solutions that work for everyone.
