Sharon Coolidge and Polly Campbell report that a lot on Kellogg Avenue in Cincinnati will soon be "transformed into Cincinnati's first permanent food truck park, where customers can choose among up to 10 trucks selling barbecue, macaroni and cheese, sushi burritos, cheesecake, and a host of other foods depending on the day."

The article credits the political support for the food truck idea to Councilmember P.G. Sittenfeld. Tony Lange, of the Queen City Mobile Food Truck Association, gets credit for making the food truck park happen.

The organization had almost settled on a place in West Chester that was supposed to open last fall, but it had run up against zoning regulations restricting parking. So they set their sights on the Kellogg Avenue lot, which is owned by Rivertowne Marina.

Lange liked the location on a busy street, near boat traffic and busy soccer fields, and right on the way for people coming and going to Riverbend Music Center concerts. 

Food trucks will be able to book a space in the park on an app called Street Food Finder. There are 140 food trucks operating in Cincinnati, and will be welcome at the food truck park.

A separate article by Coolidge provides a king of FAQ document on the food truck park, for local readers who want to learn more.
