The provisions allow for food truck courts in Frisco to operate without time or duration limitations and formalize the application process for food trucks courts to operate indefinitely. Temporary food truck courts, according to the provisions, could operate up to six months in coordination with a host business.
The commission revisited the provisions following its Jan. 26 meeting after members suggested broadening operation of food truck courts. With the revisions, food truck courts operating at any sort of special event may do so one hour before and one hour after events.
“The previous language was very narrow, geared toward spectator sports and concert events,” said Phillip Climer, a Frisco building official. “It's been refined a little bit and directed toward the attendees."
Expanding food truck court provisions comes following requests from Frisco City Council back in December, when council members inquired about allowing food truck courts similar to those in surrounding municipalities.
Food trucks in Frisco have been allowed only when associated with special, seasonal or parking lot events, according to city documents. Limited operations of temporary sites such as at Hall Office Park and Collin College have been allowed before, but these suggested changes would formalize the application process.
The provision adjustments, now approved by the P&Z commission, will be forwarded to Frisco City Council for consideration.
