A weekly food truck event at the Mountain Way Common park, originally scheduled to repeat this evening, has been suspended due to lack of a city permit, according to the North Buckhead park’s friends group.
“Unfortunately, we were recently notified by the city of Atlanta that we need to suspend our food truck Wednesdays at Mountain Way Common until we obtain a city permit,” reads a statement on the park’s Facebook page. “Atlanta Street Food Coalition, who is responsible for permitting the event, is working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible since the event is so popular. We will keep you posted on our progress and hope to bring back your Wednesday night dinner option very soon!”
A city of Atlanta spokeswoman could not immediately confirm the permit issue. The Atlanta Street Food Coalition and the Friends of Mountain Way Common did not respond to questions.
Mountain Way Common is a green space off Mountain Way, running along Little Nancy Creek, and accessed at 4134 N. Ivy Road. A groundbreaking to turn the area into a full-fledged park was held in April.
The park has hosted food trucks on Wednesday nights since May, according to the friends group’s Twitter account. The event is called “Food Truckin’ Wednesday.”
