Re:    Bistro Buggy
Submitted For: Linda Cox

Application submitted by Bistro Buggy to operate a Mobile Food Vendor Unit at Sailfish Brewery, 407 N 2nd Street, Fort Pierce.  Said use requires a variance from Sec. 9-111(b)(1) to operate within 1,000 feet from an approved special event and to locate within the Edgartown Settlement District (ES). 
On September 15, 2014, the City Commission voted approval of Ordinance 14-019 and established the regulations for lunch trucks, hot dog carts, ice cream and other forms of mobile food establishments in Chapter 9 of the Code of Ordinances.  
An application was made for a food truck (the Bistro Buggy) to operate at 407 North 2nd Street, commonly known as Sailfish Brewing, owned by 411 North 2nd Street, LLC.  During review, the application was denied by the Planning staff as not meeting the criteria within the regulations for Chapter 9 Article IV – Vendors, Solicitors and Canvassers (attached). There were two items that should be addressed - the first is for the use to be approved for this location within the Edgartown zoning district (which is a mixed use district, not a straight commercial zoning district) and the second is relief from the distance criteria presented in the Ordinance.  Section 9-97 allows for sites to petition for a public hearing by the City Commission to grant a variance from the distance requirements, similar to the waiver of distance for alcoholic beverage licenses.  
Approve the variance for The Bistro Buggy to be located at 407 N 2nd Street.
Deny or approve with conditions.
Linda W. Cox, City Clerk
Rebecca Grohall, Planning Manager
Peggy Arraiz, Code Enforcement Manager
