GULF SHORES, AL – Food trucks may soon have a welcomed place in Gulf Shores, as the city council voted May 22 to allow for mobile vendor courts to be built within the city.

The change was part of an ordinance amendment that would allow the courts within the city limits in business tourism (BT) zoned areas at the beach and the Waterway Village district.

Gulf Shores Planning Director Andy Bauer clarified what would be considered a mobile vending court for the council and crowd.

“Mobile vendor court is defined as a vacant property with a minimum of three mobile vendors,” Bauer said. “This could be food trucks, this could be some other type of portable vending unit.”

Bauer said standalone food trucks would not be allowed by this amendment and were not being considered at this time.

Bauer said the city had been approached by several people about a mobile vendor court idea, which led to the city looking at how they could facilitate that.
