The City of Los Angeles is conducting a survey to gather community input with respect to vending on City sidewalks and in City parks. The Los Angeles Municipal Code prohibits vending on sidewalks and is considered a misdemeanor and vending in City parks is only allowed with a permit.
For clarification purposes, please be aware that sidewalk vending only pertains to stationary and/or mobile carts situated on the sidewalk. Food trucks or pull carts parked on the street or parking spaces are not included as part of this survey.
If this is a topic of interest or concern to you, you may wish to respond to the survey which can be found at: https://sidewalkvending.lacity.
