Sidewalk vendors are now banned from operating near resort hotels and facilities with high seating capacity after commissioners voted Tuesday to approve a related ordinance.

Clark County commissioners voted unanimously to approve the ordinance, which will bring the county in line with a state law passed during the legislative session banning street vendors from working within 1,500 feet of a resort hotel or near a facility that can seat at least 20,000 people, among other areas.

Senate Bill 92 established a framework for the legalization of street food vending, requiring counties to establish a licensing process.

But the bill has caused confusion since taking effect this summer, leading to calls to better inform the community.
