26 Jun ELECTRIC VEHICLE READY PARKING
Salt Lake City’s Sustainability Department is proposing a zoning text amendment to the City’s Off-Street Parking chapter to include new standards for electric vehicle-ready (EV-ready) infrastructure for multi-family new-construction properties.
The proposed additional requirements stipulate that a minimum of 20% of on-site parking spaces be constructed EV-ready, meaning that they will include electrical conduit and sufficient electrical capacity for the future use of a minimum 200 volt electric vehicle charging station. EV-ready parking spaces do not require an installed charging station.
The proposed EV-ready requirement is in addition to the existing EVSE-related requirement of 1 electric vehicle charging station per 25 required parking spaces for multi-family properties. Read the notice letter, and the proposal.
Here is the letter SHCC sent to the Planning Commission. We received a second notice letter, they would like more public comment before they take it to the Planning Commission, so I will pass along any comments that come to me on this form.
