Sign our Petition to Lift the Caps

19 Feb 2015

SVP members have been hard at work on an important legislative campaign to lift the caps on vendor permits and licenses.  Since the early 1980s, an arbitrary cap has been placed on the number of available food permits and general vending licenses. This cap effectively makes street vending illegal for thousands of vendors and has led to the creation of a black market where permits (originally purchased from the City for $200) are now sold upwards of $20,000. Not fair!

Last year, we kicked off this campaign at the Murphy Center. This year, we'll be getting into full swing. We want to  decriminalize vending for hard-working immigrant communities, generate revenue for the City, and put an end to this illegal black market. 

Please support this campaign by signing this petition!
