Consultation for street vending in Reykjavik city center.
The foundation of the project and its objectives were to delineate and present a clear vision of street vending in Reykjavik and define its framework. Consideration was given to the experience of other cities regarding street and sidewalk vending, as well as the history and policies of Reykjavik in environmental, cultural, and planning matters. The focus was on selected downtown areas, which were roughly defined and mapped in relation to street and sidewalk vending. The findings were presented in a report on street and sidewalk vending. Approval for street vending permits was then granted by the City Council on April 14, 2011.
