5.42.010   Purpose.
   This chapter establishes requirements for the vending of food and goods in the public right-of-way and on private property to prevent traffic, safety, and health hazards. 
   The primary purpose of the public streets, sidewalks, parking lots, and other public ways is for use by vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Regulating mobile vending will protect the public health and safety and ensure safe pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Unregulated vending in the public right of way, from pushcarts, vehicles including food trucks, stands, or by persons contributes to traffic congestion and impedes the orderly movement of pedestrians and vehicles. And the unregulated use of congested streets and sidewalks with a high concentration of vehicular, pedestrian and commercial activity by vendors make the streets and walkways unsafe for motorists, cyclists, pedestrians, and vendors.  (Ord. 959 § 2, 2019)
