On February 28, 2022, the Hartford Business Journal published an article authored by Zachary Vasile, reporting that investors Rebeca and Quan Quach had filed plans with the City of Hartford to establish a food truck park dubbed “West Side Park” on the vacant lot at 510 Farmington Avenue. The proposed operation entails four food trucks and a double-decker bus that also serves food. Further information is located on the HBJ website.
However, a recent article authored by Kenneth R. Gosselin in the Hartford Courant, on June 27, 2022, regarding the status of plans for the “West Side Park” indicates that the opening of Hartford’s first food truck park at the corner of Farmington and Girard avenues in the City’s West End that was previously scheduled for May, 2022, is now delayed until early July, 2022.
The article continues that the investors attributed the delay to problems resulting from a combination of their own inexperience with the intricacies of dealing with multiple city departments on a project that had no existing zoning regulations, and the slow responses from city departments to their questions. Further information may be gleaned from the Hartford Courant’s website.
