KILMARNOCK—Following a public hearing Monday, the Kilmarnock planning commission recommended town council issue a conditional use permit for Terrie’s Place.
Planning and zoning director Marshall Sebra said Terrie Alderks, owner of Terrie’s Place, recently terminated her lease with the property owner at 90 North Main Street and plans to place her food trailer in the gravel parking lot next to Farm and Home Supply at 469 North Main Street, Kilmarnock.
There are policies and guidelines set forth by the planning commission and town council in 2016 related to mobile food vendors, said Sebra.
“Terrie’s plan to relocate is compliant with all aspects of the guidelines with the exception for one,” said Sebra.
In the guidelines it states mobile truck vendors and push carts shall be allowed to occupy any one site for a maximum of 48 consecutive hours during any one week.
“Her intent is to not be mobile and to leave the trailer in place for an unknown length of time, obviously not consistent with the 48 consecutive hour limit,” he said.
“I basically want to move and have the exact same operation I have had for the past four years. It would just be in a new location,” said Alderks. “I would like to be permanent because it’s a huge inconvenience to keep moving it [the trailer].”….
