Vending: Legislation Filed, Hearings in April
On February 12, Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell introduced at City Council proposed legislation to regulate the activities of street and sidewalk vending in the University City area. The bill she filed differs from the proposal published in Almanac December 9 in several ways, according to Jack Shannon, managing director of economic development in the Office of the EVP.
Aside from differences in proposed locations, Mr. Shannon said, the composition of the Vending Advisory Board has changed and provision has been made for that Board to review all design standards.
City Council is expected to conduct public hearings concerning this proposed legislation sometime in April.
