The city has decided to push back its decisions regarding food truck changes until October. They were supposed to make the decision in July, but have decided they "are not where [we] want to be."

The city's planning committee is proposing changes that could seriously affect food truck owners' ability to make money.

Food truck owners are concerned that if they are banned from residential neighborhood, they could lose up to half of their income. Owners say they work in neighborhoods almost every weekend for parties and weddings.

The city also wants to food trucks to be closed before midnight. They are worried 24 hour trucks will attract intoxicated people to the streets long after clubs close.

Also worry some, the city is proposing a 100 foot distance between food trucks and any food, drinking or entertainment establishment. Owners worry this could impact business partnerships they have already cultivated. For example, many food trucks work with NoDa Brewery to serve food to their patrons who have stopped by for a beer. They have created a partnership that will have to end if the city passes their proposal.
