Key Stakeholders Meet Wednesday to Discuss New Street-Food Rules for Oakland


It was more than two years ago that the Oakland City Council asked a couple of municipal agencies to look at the city’s 2001 mobile vending ordinance and recommend changes. And while there have been months of inquiries, commissions, studies, reports, and hearings, nothing has changed. Meanwhile, Oakland has watched as food trucks and other manifestations of street food have risen to rock-star status across the nation. Needless to say, proponents of legal street food in Oakland are a little, uh — frustrated.
