City staff is working on a new ordinance specifying rules and regulations governing vending on sidewalks and boardwalks, which have seen a proliferation of vendors.

SB 946, the Sidewalk Vending Ordinance, was passed by the state legislature in September 2018. Under the new law, the state mandates local jurisdictions to support and facilitate sidewalk vendors. The law’s intent is to loosen restrictions making it easier for independent small businesses to operate.

“I am currently working with the mayor and our City departments to enforce existing law and reign-in street vending,” said District 2 Councilmember Jennifer Campbell. “For vending that falls under gray areas of the law, my office is now taking the lead on a City-wide street-vending ordinance to provide clear enforcement guidelines.”

"I look forward to reviewing the City's street vending ordinance when it comes to council,” said District 1 Councilmember Joe LaCava. “Regulations and enforcement of our sidewalks, boardwalks, and parks are in everybody's interest."

Brick-and-mortar small businesses in beach areas have complained of unfair competition from vendors selling on boardwalks and sidewalks who are presently not bound by the same rules and restrictions that they are.

Campbell’s chief of staff Venus Molina noted the beachfront and City Council Districts 1, 2, and 3 have been most affected by the proliferation of boardwalk/sidewalk vendors.

“We’re not allowed to criminalize vending,” said Molina. “But control and enforcement are needed to ensure the rules are being followed.”

Molina said City staff is hopeful of returning by the end of summer with a new ordinance spelling out what vendors can and cannot do plying their wares on sidewalks and boardwalks.
