Electric vehicles are fast becoming standard transportation, and Bloomington is on track to present an Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Plan at an open house in fall 2023.
The automotive world is rapidly being electrified. Meeting that future head on, the City has been engaging with agencies, businesses and residents, both online and in public forums to gather input for a plan to integrate electric vehicles (EV) into the city’s infrastructure.
“The Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Plan will provide the City with a roadmap for implementing the infrastructure needed to support electric vehicles across a variety of applications,” said Public Works Development Coordinator Brian Hansen.
Along with public and professional input, the comprehensive EV Infrastructure Plan for Bloomington will include current EV facilities inventory and a review of regulatory frameworks to understand what works best for Bloomington.
The plan will continue development throughout 2023 and be presented at a public open house before going to the City Council for consideration by the end of 2023.
