In 2014, Edina City Council amended City ordinance to allow food trucks in Edina as long as they are an accessory to a taproom, winery, distillery, cocktail room or part of an event, such as a tournament or art fair, with prior approval from the City. However, other cities, including Minneapolis, allow food trucks to park around and serve the community more freely, but with limitations.
Should the City allow food trucks to operate independent of an event in Edina? Why or why not?
If food trucks were allowed to operate independent of an event, should they be restricted to certain areas of the city? Where would you like to see them?
Should there be protection in place for brick-and-mortar businesses against mobile food trucks? If so, what?
