JAMES CITY, VA – As the calendar flips to 2017, owners of local food trucks said they are excited by a new opportunity offered by James City County.

The county’s Board of Supervisors voted in November and December to pass resolutions that expanded the areas in which food trucks are permitted to operate.

Food trucks are now permitted to operate on land zoned as M-1 Limited Business/Industrial Zoning, M-2 General Industrial Zoning, PL Public Lands, B-1 General Business and PUD-C Planned Unit and Development-Commercial. Food trucks had previously been limited to serving customers strictly at private events within the county.

“I am so thankful that it has opened up the door for food trucks in the area to operate in those areas,” said Donna Oard, owner of the Karnage Asada food truck. “There was a big need for the locals for that law to be passed.”
