YAVAPAI COUNTY, AZ – Wednesday, the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to approve the text amendment to the zoning ordinance and to add language regarding the allowance of mobile food units in Yavapai County.

Yavapai County Development Services Planner Kristy Kennedy provided a detailed presentation of the item, including its journey through three previous Planning and Zoning hearings.

Before she was able to finish, Supervisors made a motion, seconded it, and approved the mobile food truck proposal.

Getting ready for P&Z

According to a memorandum dated Dec. 12, 2016, Yavapai County Development Services staff received multiple inquiries from customers regarding the ability to have mobile food vending on various residential and commercial properties.

The County Zoning Code currently does not allow for mobile food units, i.e. hot dog cart, outdoor of a hardware store, the memorandum stated.

“It has been Yavapai County Development Services policy that the use of a mobile food unit is required to obtain a use permit since it is a temporary/mobile use and not considered a permanent structure as well as not being listed as an allowed primary or accessory use in the Yavapai County Planning and Zoning Ordinance,” stated the memorandum.
