RECOMMENDATION

Recommendation

That the Council Economic Development Committee reviews this report and provides direction to staff regarding the regulation of sidewalk vendors. 

End

SUMMARY

 

California Senate Bill 946 (“SB 946”) establishes new laws associated with all sidewalk vendors and general provisions by which they can operate.  Because the City currently imposes regulations on sidewalk vending activity that are not consistent with SB 946, the City must take steps to achieve compliance. Until City Council formally adopts sidewalk vending regulations that align with SB 946, the City may not regulate, cite, fine, or prosecute a sidewalk vendor for a violation of any rule or regulation that is inconsistent with the statute.
