MOTION

The following motion was put forward by Commissioner Robertson:

Whereas the City of Vancouver's vision is to be the greenest and most sustainable city in the world, and

Whereas electric cars will rise to 35% of all cars produced in the world by 2025, of that 10% will be pure electric cars, and

Whereas many plug-in electric vehicles' range is 50 km and require only a 220-volt dryer or stove-type electrical outlet,

Therefore be it resolved that the Board direct staff to inventory the electrical infrastructure servicing Park Board parking lots and nearby areas to identify potential capacity available and outlets suitable for electric vehicle charging and identify the costs related to installing and operating outlets for electrical vehicle charging on a test basis.
