Las Vegas City Council Votes Against Arts District Food Truck Park

Las Vegas City Council unanimously rejected a proposed Arts District food truck park in the face of neighborhood opposition. 

The council voted seven to zero Wednesday against a plan to park as many as 10 food trucks on a lot near Casino Center and Charleston Boulevards. 

Several representatives of Arts District businesses expressed concerns about sanitation and the area’s already tight parking.

City Councilwoman Olivia Diaz, who represents the Arts District, said the project’s developers had failed to answer her questions about their plans.

“As early as January 14, there was a list of these concerns that was shared with the proponent of this project. Yet here we are on March 3 and there's no movement,” Diaz said. 

Mayor Carolyn Goodman said she is a fan of food trucks, and they belong in the Arts District, but this proposal was, “just the wrong place.”
