City officials will soon decide if plans for a new large downtown outdoor food cart court, will move forward.
The plans are for a Farm-to-Table food cart pod development, which includes twelve food carts, a large canopy, and a 1,800 square foot taproom and rest room area to be built within an existing 12,000 square foot building. The site consists of two parcels, including the vacated portion of W. 2nd Street, and totals approximately 1.61 acres. The site is fronted by N. Fir Street along its westerly boundary, and W. 3rd Street along its southerly boundary.
Kobel Creative Architecture described the proposal as, “A variety of dining and recreation areas will be created within the Pod, to provide seating options for large or small groups and individuals. Gas fueled fire tables will create focal points for gathering, while landscaped planters will provide a visually softer dining alternative.”
The proposed structures create no large facades. The open-air canopy is 90′ long and 21′-6″ tall at its highest point. The canopy’s open structure will be visually transparent, always allowing for light and views through the canopy.
If approved, construction could begin as early as this spring.
