Mobile food trucks now allowed in Washington Park

OVER THE RHINE, OH (FOX19) - Mobile food trucks are now allowed in Washington Park.

About a dozen trucks lined up on Friday to dedicate the new mobile food vending zone.

Council member Laure Quinlivan created Cincinnati's Mobile Food Vending program in 2010. Last year, she expanded the program to Fountain Square and the Purple People Bridge, and this year to Washington Park and Over the Rhine.

"We continue to receive a tremendous amount of positive feedback from citizens and vendors who love the healthy, affordable food choices offered by mobile vendors," says Council Member Laure Quinlivan.

The OTR vending spot is on 12th Street, near Clay and is open to food trucks from 6 p.m. to 3:30 a.m.  The Washington Park zone is open to trucks from 6 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
