Proposed Oakland food truck policy

Thoughts on the new proposed mobile food policy from the city? Notable differences from current policy:

Location now expanding to: downtown, W Oakland, N Oakland.

Can now sell food from sidewalks and the street.

More group sites where multiple vendors sell food.

As a diner, I like that the policy gets us closer to the policies in nearby cities. We shall see whether this policy, if implemented, provides more interesting choices.
