Great City has written a letter to the city council in support of mobile food vending:
Great City firmly believes that active, pedestrian-friendly streets are essential to a safe and vital city. To that end, we are excited about the opportunities mobile food vending can bring to Seattle.
A few food vendors scattered in areas that often don’t reach their potential like Westlake Park in the heart of downtown or Occidental Park in Pioneer Square could have a transformative effect on the whole city. Portland’s foot carts have been popular, especially around lunch time in Pioneer Courthouse Square. There may be some health reasons to argue for continuing the strict rules against food stands like these, but they could undoubtedly help the pedestrian experience.
