RALEIGH, NC – Officials will consider a proposal to allow food trucks to do curbside business on some downtown Raleigh streets.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports a city council committee endorsed the proposal Tuesday.

The proposal is for a six-month pilot program that mostly confines curbside food truck service to a downtown district.

Food trucks that pay a fee would be able to operate on most streets within the district from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day of the week and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Fridays.

The trucks would be prohibited from operating within 100 feet of restaurants.

City staff hopes to present the proposal to the full council Nov. 17.
