— Raleigh City Council will hold a public hearing to discuss possible changes to regulations that control food trucks.

The proposed changes would increase the number of food trucks allowed on a lot, and food trucks would also be allowed within the downtown overlay district. The changes are recommended by the council's law and public safety committee, a Raleigh City Council spokeswoman said.

The new regulations would allow two food trucks per one-half acre lot, and a maximum of four food trucks would be allowed on lots between one and two acres. 

The proposed increases are coming after a six-month review of the existing food truck regulations, the spokeswoman said. No complaints and enforcement issues have been received from the existing regulations.

The hearing with the Planning Commission will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 16.
