Campbell River is running a survey for residents to chew on a proposal for food trucks downtown next year.
A food truck pilot program was originally scheduled to be implemented this summer, but council voted to spend more time gathering feedback from downtown businesses and restaurant owners to determine how to move forward with the project.
The food truck program is now slated for the summer of 2019 as part of a downtown revitalization effort for more variety and activities to the area.
“The proposed pilot program is a response to the reoccurring theme the city has heard that people are eager to see greater food variety in downtown Campbell River,” Long Range Planning and Sustainability Manager Amber Zirnhelt said.
“Research shows that food trucks bring people into public spaces, which could attract more people to the downtown to eat and shop.”
The city says several public consultations about downtown improvements showed high demand for more diverse food options, including food trucks.
The online survey is open June 22.
