Sidewalk Vending Permit
Effective January 1, 2019, the Safe Sidewalk Vending Act (Senate Bill 946) is a state law that allows counties and cities to adopt non-criminal laws to protect public health, safety and welfare with regard to how, when and where sidewalk vendors can operate. On September 26, 202, the Rocklin City Council adopted Ordinance No. 1169 which introduced City of Rocklin Municipal Code Chapter 5.26 to explicitly address the type of sidewalk vending covered by the Safe Sidewalk Vending Act. The ordinance, which became effective on November 26, 2023, is intended to protect the public health, safety and welfare by applying objective standards to ensure that vendors on public property provide safe and sanitary conditions for consumers, are adequately insured and properly licensed with all agencies.
No sidewalk vendor may vend or operate anywhere in the City without first obtaining a Sidewalk Vending Permit and Business License (City of Rocklin Municipal Code Section 5.26.030)
