— A little more than a year after they first rolled onto Raleigh streets, food trucks in Raleigh could soon roam a bit more widely.

Raleigh City Council will hold a public hearing Tuesday to discuss loosening some of the guidelines that limit where trucks can park and how many can gather. 

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. They would also be allowed within the downtown overlay district, which covers most of downtown outside of the Glenwood South corridor.

Residents can comment on the changes at hearing Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall on Hargett Street.
