The City of West Palm Beach, Florida currently restricts all Mobile Food Vendors from operating in a zone they have designated as Downtown (from Palm Beach Lakes Blvd to Okeechobee Blvd and Flagler Dr to Australian Ave).
The City of West Palm Beach also restricts Mobile Food Vendors from operating closer than one block in proximity to each other, without a special event permit. The current cost for a special event permit is, $50 non-refundable application fee and a minimum of $500 per occasion.
The City of West Palm Beach is currently searching for ADDITIONAL regulations to be placed on mobile food vendors. Ideas such as, having all vendors park in a central location for a tourist attraction and restricting proximity to existing businesses are being proposed.
We the undersigned, demand that the City of West Palm Beach, FL remove the current restrictions placed on mobile food vendors that prevent them from operating in downtown areas and limiting the quantity of vendors that can operate in close proximity, provided that the mobile food vendors are legally parked in the City.
We demand that the City of West Palm Beach, halt all proceedings to further restrict Mobile Food Vendors within the City. Any future regulations must be agreed upon by the majority of the vendors licensed within the City.
We further demand the City of West Palm Beach treat all Mobile Food Vendors, licensed through the Florida Division of Hotels and Restaurants and the City, with the same regulations as a brick and mortar restaurant.
