Yard sales and taco trucks: Days could be numbered for some businesses in Kannapolis

KANNAPOLIS ó The Kannapolis City Council will consider new regulations for yard sales, taco trucks and other temporary or mobile businesses.
The meeting starts at 6 p.m. Monday at the train station on South Main Street.
In response to complaints that some yard sales have become permanent fixtures, council will consider limiting to eight the number of days that one address may host a yard sale each year.
Council also will consider limiting mobile food vendors like taco trucks to 90 days in the same location.
The new rules also will affect produce stands, carnivals, fireworks stands, sidewalk vendors and trailers or model homes for real estate offices.
These proposed changes to the city’s Unified Development Ordinance are designed to clarify language and remove discrepancies in enforcement, city manager Mike Legg said.
“We’re not going to have the yard sale police out,” Legg said, but the changes would allow the city to address problems when they arise.
Council’s discussion will include a public hearing.
Council also will conduct public hearings on the following:
– Action plan for Community Development Block Grant.
– Amending the outdoor storage supplemental requirements.
– Approval of a development agreement between the city and Fisher Lakes Farms.
In other business, the city will consider:
– Approving a new supplemental fire protection contract with Odell Fire Department for the Western Growth Area.
– Ideas for Energy Efficiency & Conservation Block Grant projects.
– Scope of work for the Wood Avenue extension project.
