Zoning Text Amendment
Electric Vehicle Readiness Zoning Text Amendment
Petition Number: PLNPCM2022-00374
Project Location: Citywide
Zoning District: All Zones
On request of Mayor Mendenhall, Salt Lake City’s Sustainability Department is requesting 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.
