Please see Depoe Bay Zoning Ordinance of 1975, as Amended, for full information on Mobile Vending Stands.

 

 

Mobile Vending Stand Definition

 

A structure, cart, trailer, or stand which is movable from place to place, and is used for the purpose of selling foods, soft drinks, and other non-alcoholic beverages to the public directly or indirectly, and is equipped to dispense food or beverage and/or prepare the food or beverage for consumption. A mobile vending stand does not contain space for customers to enter the stand to purchase or consume products.

 

 

Mobile Vending Stands are not an outright use anywhere within City of Depoe Bay limits; however, they are permitted in conjunction with City-approved community festivals and events with no City licensing necessary:

 

"No person shall sell any items, including but not limited to food, beverages, flowers, balloons, orother items, or offer them for sale, from any street, sidewalk, public right-of-way, or public property within the City limits of the City of Depoe Bay; provided however that items permitted to be sold from a "mobile vending stand" may be sold from public property or public right-of-way which has been closed by motion or resolution of the City Council if the mobile vending stand is doing business in conjunction with a festival/community event. A "festival or commuity event" is a temporary use of land for the purpose of providing general community amusement, recognition of historical events or traditions, or celebration of community-wide local products, which are organized by non-profit organizations and the proceeds of the festival or event are used to promote the purposes of the non-profit organization or donated to other non-profit organizations."

 

To be a licensed Mobile Vending Stand, the applicant must apply for a Conditional Use Permit as outlined in Article 6 of the City's Zoning Code. The process takes a minimum of two months, with no guarantee of approval. There is a $240 fee plus a $500 deposit to submit an application for a Conditional Use Permit. If the application is granted, a City Business License must then be obtained.
