Street vendors should be accommodated where there is a potential demand for their goods and services, such as near major intersections, transit hubs, parks, and plazas. Cities may create plans and guidelines to accommodate street vendors in relevant locations while avoiding conflicts with other users and commercial activities.
Creating dedicated space allows street vendors to safely and comfortably conduct their business. Avoid encroaching into pedestrian flows in crowded or narrow sidewalks, ensuring a clutter-free pedestrian clear path. Dedicated spaces can
be allocated on sidewalks, in parking lanes, or in the enhancement zone.
Provide seating opportunities in areas with high concentrations of vendors while ensuring walking paths remain clear. During temporary pedestrianization of streets, the use of movable chairs, tables, and benches can be very efficient and cost effective.
Providing storage for street vendors enhances comfort and work conditions and allows them to store unsold goods in a safe place adjacent to their work area. Fixed stands for street vendors in specific areas such as plazas and esplanades can also enhance the character of the space.
