Cochranites will get another chance to have their say, and give feedback on some of the potential regulations the Town of Cochrane is looking at in respect to mobile food vendors.
The TOC will host a Food Truck Bylaw Open House this Thursday, Sept. 29, where residents and stakeholders can learn more about the proposed bylaw, resident survey results, the process to become food truck, and the bylaw approval process.
Planner with The Town of Cochrane, Oluwa Kemi Apanisile, says the walk in session should answer some questions residents have about mobile food vendors.
"This is a chance for Cochrane residents to get a sense of some of the regulations and the direction the town is going." he says. "The main components that people are going to get from this, are going to be how people can obtain a Mobile Food Truck Development Permit, and exactly where they'll be able to operate."
Where food trucks can operate has been a point of contention during the pilot project, Apanisile shares planners have been looking at viable solutions to the issue.
"We heard some feedback, and we heard what was going on during the summer, so we have some site specific areas on street that we're looking at potentially making permanent designated on street parking operations."
The open house will also include information on potential storage regulations, and basic safety standards.
If you can't make it to the open house Apanisile explains the town is still taking feedback, any comments or questions can be emailed, faxed, or called into the Planning Department.
