General Notice
Solicitation of Public Comment Concerning the use of state highway right of way for mobile food vending pursuant to Chapter 466 of the 2015 Acts of Assembly
Date Posted: 4/2/2015
Expiration Date: 5/4/2015
Submitted to Registrar for publication: YES
No comment forum defined for this notice.

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) plans to  prepare and propose to the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) amendments to the land use permit regulations (24VAC30-151-670) in accordance with the provisions set out in Chapter 466 of the 2015 Acts of Assembly, which would allow mobile food vending on state highway right of way.  The CTB will then consider the amendments for adoption, or may direct that additional input be solicited before making a decision.

Currently, the Land Use Permit Regulations (24VAC30-151-670) prohibit vendors from selling on state highway right of way.

Chapter 466 requires the CTB to amend its regulations to allow mobile food vending on non-limited access highways.  Chapter 466 further provides that the regulations shall allow localities to regulate operation of the mobile food vending businesses located on state highway right of way in a manner consistent with local ordinances and Commonwealth Transportation Board regulations and policies.

Chapter 466 also requires VDOT to seek input from localities and other stakeholders during the process of amending the regulations.

This General Notice is not intended to substitute for any subsequent solicitations of public input that may be made during a formal regulatory amendment process.

The public comment period will  close at 5:00 p.m. on May 4, 2015.  Anyone wishing to submit comments may do so by mail, email, or fax to:
