Re:    Request for Waiver of Distance for a food truck ("Taqueria Tierra Caliente") at 1710 Okeechobee Rd.
Submitted For: Linda Cox

Approve a request for waiver of distance from Sec. 9-111(b)(1) submitted by Roman Cardenas to operate a food truck ("Taqueria Tierra Caliente") at 1710 Okeechobee Road, Fort Pierce.
On September 15, 2014, the City Commission approved Ordinance 14-019 establishing regulations for lunch trucks, hot dog carts, ice cream and other forms of mobile food establishments identified in Chapter 9 of the Code of Ordinances.

An application has been made by Roman Cardenas for a food truck ("Taqueria Tierra Caliente") to operate at 1710 Okeechobee Road. 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). The item 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 waiver from the distance requirement, similar to the waiver of distance for alcoholic beverage license.
Approve the waiver of distance request for the Taqueria Tierra Caliente food truck to be located at 1710 Okeechobee Road.
Deny or approve with conditions.
