BREAKING NEWS! Raleigh City Council Approves Food Truck Ordinance!

DSC08939

The Raleigh City City Council has just approved  the revised food truck ordinance (by a vote of 6-2) allowing food trucks to operate  in Downtwon Raleigh with certain limitations as of October 1, 2011.  While it has taken longer than some had hoped to reach this point, I think the proposed ordinance is a step in the right direction and has the flexibility of being revisited in the future to iron out any kinks in implementation. Keep an eye out for more food trucks in downtown Raleigh soon!

Major Provisions In Final Approved Ordinance

Trucks must be on private  commercial / industrial property (not on public streets).

Must be located at least 150 100 feet away from front door of any nearby restaurant.

May stay open to 3am (consistent with hot dog push carts).

Trucks to pay $150 Annual Permit Fee.
