Beaverton is considering rewriting regulations that currently restrict food carts to 7 hours at any one location.  They are asking citizens to participate in a study to determine if they should rewrite these rules in efforts to create pods.  Yes please.


Please help by filling out this very quick survey on this topic.

Beaverton city council is voting on Aug 11 to relax rules for food carts and cart pods.  The vote is expected to pass and permits will start being sold in September.  They've put some rules in place though, which will limit where and how carts operate.  They seem similar to cart pod rules downtown, I think. The biggest difference between the rules now vs after September will be hours of operation.  Right now they're only allowed to operate and be in one location up to 7 hours/day.  After the new rules, they can be open 24/7. 


"No generators. Permanent electrical hookups will be required.

All utilities must be underground.

Potable and wastewater connections must meet state plumbing codes.

Pods must be located on asphalt or concrete to minimize grease or other substances from reaching the soil.

If a cart has seating, it must provide access to restrooms on site or nearby. Port-a-potties must be screened from view.

Small shelters from rain and heat are allowed.

Carts must be at least 20 feet from residences."
