huntsville alabamaHUNTSVILLE, AL – The Rocket City appears ready to join the national food truck craze.

An ordinance introduced at Thursday’s Huntsville City Council meeting would allow food trucks to set up downtown along Clinton and Cleveland avenues from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

Planning and Zoning Administration Manager Marie Bostick said the city wants to provide opportunities for people to grab a bite late at night without creating extra competition for restaurants. Most downtown eateries start closing at 10 p.m.

“It’s just another way for people to get out and enjoy being downtown,” said Bostick.

If the council gives the thumbs-up at its June 27 meeting, mobile vendors could sell food on both sides of Clinton Avenue from Jefferson Street to just east of Washington Street in the new Quigley Entertainment District. They would also be allowed in a city parking lot on Cleveland Avenue across from A.M. Booth’s Lumberyard in the Meridian Entertainment District.
