Proposed Ordinance Feedback

 

The City of Houston is proposing the following ordinance(s) below. We invite you to comment on the ordinance(s) by clicking the link(s) to read the proposed language and submit your comments online.

 

  • Anti-Hoarding Ordinance
    • Houston City Council considers a proposed ordinance that would deal with the issue of hoarding as it affects public health and safety.
  • Mobile Food Units (MFU)
    • At this time, there is no date set for City Council consideration of these changes.  There are four key changes.  One change affects Downtown Houston. The other changes are citywide. The downtown change would allow MFUs to use up to a 40lb propane tank for their food service. There are three changes that would apply citywide:
      • Allow MFUs to be within 60 feet of one another (if there are more than 4 MFUs next to each other, a standby fire marshal must be present)
      • Allow MFUs to be within 100 feet of existing outdoor tables and chairs
      • Allow MFUs to place up to 3 tables and 6 chairs in front of their units when in service
