What would happen if a trailer park and the Yum Yum truck hooked up and had a secret child nobody knew about? Then that child went to school at some small liberal arts school in Portland or a lesser state school in Austin? Then what would happen if it moved back to Fort Worth?
Welp, the Star-Telegram is reporting that the City's Board of Adjustment will be asked to grant a special exception to the mobile vending ordinance to create a Food Truck Park. The lot is west of downtown, on Weisenberger and I think just east of Carroll (behind the Target).
As you've no doubt noticed, food trucks are popping up everywhere and they're re-energizing the mobile food industry long considered the purveyor of dirty food at carnivals and construction sites. The trend of food parks is also expanding to provide a central focus point for truck food. San Antonio has one, dallas is considering one and now we may have our own here in the Fort. And of course, Austin, Portland, etc have them.
If you're interested, the Board of Adjustment meeting is June 6th and Chris' request is 15th on the agenda, so don't worry about getting there on time. Also, there is some opposition from nearby companies who are worried about the traffic impact on the streets around their operations. Chris is seeking a special exception which would allow up to 8 food trucks (or trailers) on the property. Presumably it will not be eight taco trucks.... Chris, the masses have spoken on the need for different foods.
For those of you in favor of food trucks, this is probably a good sign. If you're against them, you hate capitalism and Joseph McCarthy's son wants to add you to a list he's compiling.
Let the world know what you think by commenting. Remember, the leaders of the Fort have this blog as their home page.
