Project Description

The applicant requests Coastal Permit and Use Permit approval to operate a food truck on a commercially developed property in Stinson Beach. The food truck would be parked 25 feet, 7 inches from the northern front property line; more than 60 feet from the western side property line; more than 100 feet from the eastern side property line; 33 feet from the southern rear property line.

It is possible that the type of food truck would change to meet community needs. For example, there may be a coffee service in the morning and lunch/dinner services later in the day. Overall, a food truck would be in operation seven days a week from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm. There would be no more than 2 employees at a time and the food truck would be required to have an offsite commissary for food preparation and waste.

Various site improvements would also be entailed in the proposed development, including the removal of an existing 526 square foot structure in the location of the proposed food truck.

Use Permit approval is required because the project entails operating a take-out food establishment in the C-VCR zoning district as outlined in Section 22.57.123I.8. Coastal Permit approval is required because the project requires Use Permit approval as outlined in Section 22.56.040I.A.
