Minneapolis Street Food Proposal Passes
At today’s meeting of the Minneapolis City Council, a proposal to expand street food vending in downtown Minneapolis passed by a unanimous vote. The measure, proposed by Councilmember Lisa Goodman, will take effect on May 1, 2010, and will allow a set number of commercial kitchen license-holding vendors to operate motorized food carts in specific, permanent areas downtown. The proposal now awaits the final approval of Mayor R.T. Rybak. More details (plus text of the proposal) as we obtain them. UPDATE: The city’s official news release.
