New rules set to help Beaverton food cart pods


KEN: YOU CAN EXPECT MORE FOOD CARTS POPPING UP IN BEAVERTON PRETTY SOON. BEAVERTON’S CITY COUNCIL GAVE THE FOOD CART INDUSTRY AN EARLY CHRISTMAS PRESENT EARLIER THIS MONTH. KOHR HARLAN SHOWS US WHAT TO EXPECT. KOHR: THE NEW RULES ADOPTED BY BEAVERTON’S CITY COUNCIL ARE AN EFFORT IN PART OF DO AWAY WITH WHAT FOOD CART OWNERS SAY HAVE BEEN BURDENSOME REGULATIONS THAT HAVE HAMSTRUNG THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW FOOD CARTS IN BEAVERTON. ALMOST A Year AGO I SAT DOWN WITH KENT DRANGSHOLT WHO WANTED TO SET UP FOUR NEW FOOD CARTS NEAR WESTERN AND BEAVERTON HILLSDALE HIGHWAY. HE Guessed THE COST OF DIGGING UP HIS PARKING LOT FOR PERMANENT UTILITY AND SEWER HOOKUPS TO BETWEEN $ 30,000 AND $ 50,000, $4600 FOR EACH HOOK UP.IN ALL, KENT TOLD ME HE’D HAVE TO SPEND $ 80,000 JUST TO OPEN FOUR FOOD CARTS. IT Simply SEEMED LIKE THE CITY OF BEAVERTON WAS SAYING WE REALLY DON’T WANT CARTS BUT WE’RE GOING TO ALLOW CARTS. KOHR: KENT’S Nightmare Sounds TO BE OVER. I TALKED WITH BEAVERTON’S MAYOR DENNY DOYLE THIS MORNING ABOUT THE CITY’S NEW REGULATIONS CONCERNING FOOD CARTS. WE’RE TRYING TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR FOOD Husk TO BECOME ESTABLISHED. WE’VE ELIMINATED THE UNDERGROUNDING OF ALL UTILITIES. THEY CAN NOW USE ABOVE GROUND STORAGE FOR WASTE AND FOR WATER, WHICH IS WHAT’S BEING DONE AROUND THE REGION.KOHR: MAYOR DOYLE SAYS HE EXPECTS ELIMINATION OF THE UNDERGROUND UTILITY HOOKUP REQUIREMENT TO DRAMATICALLY LOWER COSTS AND ALLOW FOOD CART OPERATORS TO OPERATE IN BEAVERTON PROFITABLY. HE EXPECTS TO SEE A 15 TO 20 FOOD CART PODS RIGHT IN THE SHADOW OF THE BEAVERTON BUILDING AS EARLY AS THIS SPRING. IT’S Genuinely Get TO SPARK THIS NEIGHBORHOOD ALONG WITH ALL THE BUILDING WE’RE DOING HERE, AND SO IT’S A PLAN, IT’S NOT Really WE’RE Do THIS CASUALLY, YOU KNOW. WE’RE TRYING TO MAKE THIS AN 18 HOUR PART OF TOWN.KOHR: NEW RULES ALSO WILL ALLOW FOOD TRUCKS TO PARK WITHOUT A PERMIT FOR LESS THAN THREE HOURS TO SERVE FOOD ..
