It shouldn't be an issue since it's on private property and this is equated as a private event (similar to when we had the HyVee catering truck provide lunch at our 2019 City staff event at the Nature Sanctuary). It becomes an issue if the food truck wants to park on a public street or operate frequently (i.e., every Saturday at a specific location). Thank you for checking with us.

If residents wanted to have a food truck at the pool, on a private parking lot, of a HOA for lunch one day, would that need to be permitted?

Below is the City's regulations for food trucks. The way our Development Code is written, they're allowed in all non-residential districts only if they have an Application for Conditional Use Permit approved via ordinance by our Board of Aldermen. Food trucks are also allowed in conjunction with a Special Event Permit in the park such as an authorized street fair, public festival, or farmer's market event; but they would have to have permission/authorization from the event organizer. So for example, we could have food trucks for Parkville Days, but the operator would be required to park at least 300 ft. away from all of the downtown restaurants (e.g., Stone Canyon Pizza, Pullman's BBQ).

Most food trucks have gone the route of operating in conjunction with a Special Event. We have yet to receive an Application for Conditional Use Permit for an operator to be staged in a permanent location at a specific address.

Are there any city rules on food trucks operating in Parkville?
