On one side of the debate, opponents of the trucks say they unfairly compete with brick and mortar restaurants and take up valuable street parking. Supporters, including Planning Director Rollin Stanley, say the trucks add to a sense of urban vibrancy, and serve a demand for quick eats by those who can't afford to spend an hour in a sit down restaurant.
Some local jurisdictions have attempted to set parameters on food trucks. The City of Gaithersburg requires food trucks to move every 30 minutes and not return to the same area for 2 hours. Washington, DC is also contemplating legilsation.
