Food Truck Fight?

As food trucks grow in popularity and start motoring into more and more parts of our city, there are bound to be some growing pains associated with them. The Nob Hill Neighborhood Association will be discussing some food truck related issues at their meeting tonight at 6:30 p.m. at Build New Mexico (122 Tulane).

In particular, some members of the Association are concerned that food trucks have been blocking usage of brick and mortar businesses and clogging up public parking. They’d like to see the area’s zoning changed so that trucks are relegated to setting up shop outside of parking lots and away from storefronts. Others believe that the mobile restaurants make the area more pedestrian friendly and vibrant overall and shouldn’t be restricted.

If you’ve got an opinion on this issue, consider stopping by the meeting and voicing your concerns. You can also email the Nob Hill Main Street Board at nobhillabqmainstreet@gmail.com or leave a comment on the Neighborhood Associatin’s facebook page.

We at the Alibi will be following this issue as well, so check back for updates in the near future.

    I attended the meeting of the Nob Hill sector development task force as they continue they're pro active relationship with area businesses. Food truck owners, area residents and members of the main street and neighborhood association were in attendance.

    Open discussion of issues and impact relating to the rapid growth of food truck operation in an unique area where homes are impacted by the proximity to the cities premier shopping dinning and entertainment area.

    Parking, right of way, business access, sanitation, noise and hours of operation as well as solutions to issues seen in other areas around the country with dynamic and burgeoning food truck industries were talked about.

    Food trucks can be found in several nob hill areas just about any time and at the Annual Holiday Shop and Stroll event. Saturday, December 1 Central Ave from Washington St to Girard Blvd.
