i do not know of anyone nor have i experanced any violence, crime, or anything negative coming to a certain area because a mobile food vender is there, if your worried about crime or negative inpact on these areas or any areas for that matter, have a meeting with cmpd and ease up on seat belt tickets and concentrate on gang areas, drug areas, high crime rate areas, abandoned malls, closed shoping centers, if city ordinence can create change to areas that affect honest hard working citizens in a time that everyone is looking for work or turning to non-legal activitys to support their familys the city ordinance should do somthing that helps the area, weather its mandating the cleaning up old motels and shoping centers and abandoned areas. or somthing with a little more thought,

Everyone is not fortunate to be able to rent a physical storefront plus all of the expenses that come with it. Everyone deserves a chance to follow their dream and own their own business. Also if your business is all its set out to be, no one elses business should interfere. Your product speaks for itself.

The Latino community deserves to have authentic latin food in our neighborhoods as part of our culture.

Please amend the ordinance now in place, to be inclusive and mindful of the needs of the latin community present in Charlotte.

Charlotte always seems to consider itself a "big city" and in support of small business. Yet, decisions like the one to ban food trucks shows small-town stubbornness and bias against hard-working merchants trying to add more food choices for Charlotteans everywhere. I lived in Philadelphia for four years and cannot IMAGINE that time without neighborhood food trucks. And, what would New York City be without its myriad of food options on every block? The more competition for our food dollar can ONLY improve the quality and variety of the offerings, more people who are allowed to make a living, and a citywide promotion of a multinational culture like the big cities it aspires to be. And the downside to this is what?

ITS UNAMERICAN TO TRY TO OUTLAW THOSE INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE HARDWORKING AND TRYING TO GET AHEAD. THESE ARE THE INDIVIDUALS WHICH ARE THE BACKBONE OF THE UNITED STATES AND WHAT MAKES OUR COUNTRY GREAT.

I believe that all businesses should have a fighting chance, no matter who might be running that business.
