Permanent food truck park on track to becoming a reality

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Lubbock is known for many things: its food trucks aren't on that list. That might be changing.  

The city is on its way to cementing the first permanent food truck park. 

The park was pitched to city council back in January as a way to enhance the Cultural Arts District.

While plenty of food trucks can be seen around town, there's never been a place they can park and serve for good.

Council approved the re-zoning of the area next to Charles Adams Studio Project to allow for eight trucks to serve daily. 

"We were approached by Charles Adams studio project several months ago  about changing mobile food truck alignment over in the cultural arts district and actually creating a zone if you will, park for mobile food trucks." Councilman Jeff Griffith said. "We voted to amend the original plan, the recommended plan for four, but we amended it to eight in that park."

Fridays in April during lunch were the test runs and those hours will likely extend through the summer until enough funding can be generated to keep the park open for good.

"I'm just one of seven but I think I can speak for everyone today that we're all excited to see this all evolve and, again part of the cultural arts district. It's the perfect location for it," Griffith said.
