No easy street for food trucks

Food trucks are a common sight in many big cities, but Durango is home to very few, and that is by design.
Here, food trucks can’t set up on public streets or in parks, and even on private property, they’re only permitted to operate six months out of the year.
While the related city regulations were written to prevent food trucks from undercutting restaurants, critics have argued they prevent cash-strapped entrepreneurs from starting small and building up.
City planners have said they will look at the rules, but no changes have been proposed.
