WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Among several proposals discussed at the Wilmington Planning Commission’s meeting Wednesday night, the talks will continue about the future of food trucks and their place within city limits.

The commission discussed a proposal that would allow the trucks to operate throughout the city’s non-residential zoning districts from 6 a.m. until 3 a.m. It would keep the trucks from setting up within 50 feet of the main entrance of an open restaurant.

The planning commission will talk food trucks again July 10.

If they built everything they planned we’d be broke!
Perhaps we should call this the Dream Commission?

Bla, bla, bla, bla …………………

Looks like someone could really use a “Doing” Commission.

What good is a planning commission if all they plan to do is to talk about it some more?

I can somewhat understand why restaurant owners have issues with food trucks. It is more competition. However, trucks are not a lot different from home food delivery, like pizza and such. The restaurants could always start a delivery service or begin running their own mobile food trucks. It is not like thay can only sell food from a brick and mortar building. Give customers what they want.

I love the food trucks…PLEASE let them stay…as a working person who gets the privelege to have one come by regularly each week, it’s a great change and those companies can bring some extra cash if they are large enough, that big glass looking building downtown needs to be talking to the different ones out there for sure and the universities/colleges…food trucks can make good money from them, guaranteed.

the Planning Commission hasn’t authorized spending $100,000 on a study…or at least formed a “task force”. They’ll cuss and discuss this topic for months on end…only to say…”We need to study it a while longer.”
