Thank you for a wonderful season of Lunching on Fridays in our Lot. NGC will hand off the organizing-baton directly over to Food Truck Owners from now on. Starting April 27, 2022 please know the O&20th lot can be made available to trucksters to serve the public free of charge as long as the corner parking lot adjacent to eastbound O street and next to the rock-lot remains available/vacant by the Telegraph District and its Property Owners and local ordinances are adhered to. Food Trucks and Non-Profits are welcome to organize among themselves to serve at any time and date, as long as the O&20th Lot is open, vacant, available, Telegraph District Approved and service complies with city ordinances. Please follow these easy steps:
1. Contact NGC Marketing for availability & scheduling purposes and for us to notify others: Telegraph District Property Mgt, TD Biz Coalition and our Facilities Department.
2. Promotion and Postings will be up to you via your channels; NGC is no longer responsible for inviting participants, planning, arrangements or making promotional or advertising announcements via NGC’s channels.
3. Please do NOT damage any asphalt, landscaping, fencing, walls, signage, lamp posts or underground utility or sprinkler systems; No stakes, weights only. Your signage must remain on your mobile trailer, truck or vehicle. If there’s a large or special occasion, let NGC Mktg (Jen) or Code Beer (Sydney) or Speedway Properties (Nina) know as the Telegraph District has a business group coalition that organizes events and discusses neighborhood-wide promotions, and can possibly join forces with you to assist with participation and communications.
The O Street & 20th parking lot is just east of Antelope Valley Parkway in the Telegraph District. The north lot along south O Street between 20th and 21st Streets is a great location for food truck owners to host their services! Again, reasonable time stints, compliance with ownership, adherence to local Lincoln City health/traffic ordinances and no fees–as of this publication date April 27, 2022. There’s plenty of parking, so book gigs and post away! Check Lincoln’s upcoming weather here.
