The city of Portland is reviewing feedback it has received throughout the Eastern Prom food truck pilot program. 

In line with its review, the city has also been seeking comments and additional input from the public and the food truck vendors who park on the Prom through two surveys. The public survey opened Oct. 3, and can be completed through 4:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14. During the pilot program, which ends Nov. 15, the city waived any permitting fees. 

The survey asks participants 16 questions, including how often they visit the Eastern Prom, where visitors are from, what activities they participate in

The pilot program provided 14 free spots for food truck vendors to park in a dedicated space in the Cutter Street lot to address concerns of residents, small business owners and visitors to the area.

"We've had more than 2,500 people start the survey, but the results are showing more like 1,500 official responses," said Jessica Grondin, city director of communications and digital services.

She added that staff will not fully evaluate the surveys until after the survey period closes on Oct. 14.
