KAMLOOPS - Restrictions on food trucks may be getting relaxed ahead of spring.

Rules on the size, location and groupings of food trucks may be loosened along with later closing times for food trucks. The bylaw and business license amendments will be before council tomorrow, Feb. 7, for discussion.

In a report to council, city staff recommend the changes after discussions with the downtown business association and food truck operators. Some amendments will also mean clarification of rules around brick and mortar restaurants and how far food trucks must be from permanent establishments.

One of the changes will mean food trucks will be able to congregate in under-serviced areas, like the Tourism Kamloops centre just off Highway 1.

An additional recommendation from staff proposes a St. Paul Street 'food truck zone' in front of Stuart Wood school. Riverside Park has also being discussed, according to the report, as a potential location in the future.
