June 16, 2018 – News, Notices for Public Comment

Learn how Juneau’s electric transportation has grown in the past 5 years, where it’s headed in the future, and the importance of charging infrastructure at the next Sustainability Session on Tuesday, June 19 at 5:30 p.m. in City Hall Chambers. The public is also invited to provide input on Electric Vehicle charging stations.

The City and Borough of Juneau is exploring ways to address public Electrical Vehicle charging stations and parking on CBJ property. Charging at stations on CBJ property and private property lots is currently free to the public. The Juneau Commission on Sustainability wants to hear from the public about their ideas for EV charging and parking scenarios as it relates to the Juneau Renewable Energy Strategy, the Juneau Climate Action and Implementation Plan, and CBJ Resolution 2722 “Support for the Advancement of Electrified Transportation Vehicles and Supporting Infrastructure.”

There will be a public comment period on electric vehicle charging and parking scenarios from June 19 to July 18. The comment period will result in a recommendation to the Juneau Assembly. Starting June 19, the public may submit comments on the Juneau Commission on Sustainability’s website: juneau.org/sustainability/.  Background documents, including the Juneau Renewable Energy Strategy, are also available on the website.

This session is the first of two public meetings on Electric Vehicles sponsored by the Juneau Commission on Sustainability. Sustainability Sessions are part of an educational series working toward implementing the Juneau Renewable Energy Strategy.
