Public Invited to Hearing on Food Truck Changes

Raleigh's food truck program seems to be going so well that councilors are considering easing some of the rules associated with it, including allowing more food trucks on a piece of property and allowing trucks to do business downtown.

Today, only one food truck is allowed on a quarter-acre piece property. If the change is approved, two would be allowed.

A change would also allow trucks in the Downtown Overlay District (DOD). The DOD covers most of Downtown Raleigh, with the exception of Glenwood South down to Hillsborough Street.

Residents can comment on the changes at hearing Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall on Hargett Street.

Food trucks were permitted in Raleigh only after contentious debate for more than one year. City inspections and planning staff have since reported no problems or negative feedback.

Almost 20 food truck permits have been issued by the city, along with 11 permits for food truck locations.
