Councilmember Emmanuel V. Remy, Chair of the Public Safety Committee, and Councilmember Rob Dorans, Chair of the Building & Zoning Policy Committee, will host a public hearing to learn more about proposed Electric Vehicle (EV) Ready Parking legislation coming before Columbus City Council in June 2022. The legislation will require that newly built parking lots and garages have a minimum number of EV charging stations installed upon completion of construction and have the electrical infrastructure to add more charging stations easily and affordably in the future.
The proposed EV Ready Parking legislation reflects the input and feedback provided by a diverse set of stakeholders, community groups, and residents through a year-long co-creation process. Additional detail on the co-creation process, including presentations and resource downloads, can be found at https://www.columbus.gov/sustainable/evreadyparking/.
Any resident seeking to submit written testimony should forward it to the office of Councilmember Remy. Written testimony must be received by 2:00pm on the day of the hearing and emailed to Lucy Frank at [email protected].
Residents who want to provide testimony via WebEx, or in person, during the hearing must email Lucy Frank at [email protected] by noon on the day of the hearing. Each speaker's remarks are limited to three minutes or less.
