Food truck trailer park planned for Lower Greenville
DALLAS At a press conference Tuesday morning to unveil the plans to make Lower Greenville Avenue more walkable, one speaker dropped a juicy bit of news: He wants to create a trailer park on the site of the former Arcadia, with six Airstream trailers that will become food trucks.
Jonathon Hetzel of Madison Partners (who said he was speaking on behalf of the Reese family, who owns the site), said the one-acre “urban food park” is inspired by Austin food trucks and trailer parks. He said he couldn't reveal which restaurants would take up in the Airstreams but called it a “chef-driven concept.”
“There are lots [of restaurants] interested; none I can name,” Hetzel said.
Not surprisingly, permitting for food trucks is a problem in Dallas. Hetzel said getting a permit is “part of the issue” before the project is finalized.
Hetzel met with Austin city staff and made copies of Austin ordinances to see how Dallas might best assign permits for the food truck park.
