    Mr. Sigfridson owns Café x Clark, a food truck that parks in the parking lot of Canadian Tire on Starrs Road (120 Starrs Road). Currently food trucks are considered Seasonal Retail Trade Uses within the Town’s Planning Documents and are only permitted to operate on a single property for nine (9) months out of the year. The intent of this policy is to enable startup businesses to operate within the Town, however, when a business is successful and wishes to operate year-round, it is anticipated that it would then be in a permanent structure; thus, paying taxes and having access to water and sewer services. The applicant would like to operate from a temporary structure (food truck) year-round, without the nine (9) month limitation.

    How does this affect the community?

    Business Community

    The applicant would have the benefit of operating year-round without having to invest in having a permanent structure, with water and sewer access. Seasonal retail uses would then be able to compete with other similar uses within the Town that pay taxes and have invested in buildings.

    Residents and Visitors

    The Town’s food trucks, which are enjoyed by many, could operate year-round three-hundred and sixty-five (365) days a year from one (1) location, offering their food to their customers.
