More on Food Trucks and Schools: Shrinking SF Guidelines, Amending AB 1678

Last week, SFoodie reported that a new bill introduced into the state assembly threatens San Francisco's growing street food scene. AB 1678, introduced by Assemblymember Bill Monning of Carmel, would prohibit food trucks from parking within 1,500 feet of any elementary or secondary school during school hours. 

A number of San Franciscans, including Supervisor Scott Wiener, have pointed out that in a dense city like ours, the combined exclusion zones would end up covering 80 percent of the city.

This morning, Wiener announced that he's introducing legislation to the Board of Supervisors that would change San Francisco's food truck regulations, which currently prevent food trucks from parking within 1,500 — three blocks — from middle or high schools. His proposed legislation would reduce the exclusion zone around schools to 500 feet, or one block.
