The City of Issaquah is in the process of developing an Electric Vehicle (EV) Infrastructure Ordinance. The proposed EV Ordinance would impact new multifamily and commercial infrastructure as well as substantial retrofit projects.
The ordinance aims to reduce one of the biggest barriers to EV acquisition, which is the lack of charging stations. It will require a certain percentage of parking to have EV charging stations or be EV-ready.
On Thursday, March 11, the Public Policy Commission (PPC) will host a public hearing where interested residents and stakeholders can give comment on the proposed Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Ordinance. The agenda and materials are available here for review. City Council will consider feedback from the PPC meeting and is anticipated to take action on the Ordinance on April 5.
