Megan is looking for your input on Street Vending

February 15, 2017 11:59 AM

The City of Madison is releasing an online survey and hosting a community meeting to gather ideas and input to improve the City's Street Vending Program.   Madison's nationally-recognized street vending scene includes unique food carts, talented artists and craftspeople, outdoor merchant vending, and vibrant sidewalk cafes.  These activities are overseen by the City's Vending Oversight Committee and managed by the Street Vending Coordinator, based within the City's Office of Business Resources.


The first way to provide input is to complete a brief online survey by following the link below.  It should take about 5 minutes.


The next way to give input is to attend a community meeting that will take place on February 23 from 6pm to 8pm at the Central Library Room 301.  For social media fans here is the link to the Facebook event page:

This will be an engaging and interactive discussion covering a variety of topics including:  

Art & craft vending
The review process to assign sites for Food Carts
Opportunities for sidewalk cafes and outdoor retail vending
Future ideas to improve street vending in Madison.

The input you provide through the survey and at the community meeting will help guide changes to the City's policies and processes that support and regulate street vending in Madison.
