MOTION

The following motion, put forward by Commissioner Robertson, was referred from the Meeting of the Board held on Monday, July 06, 2009.

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.

The following motions were put forward by Commissioner Jasper:

   A     Whereas at the regular Board meeting on Monday, February 02, 2009, the Board established two
          committees, Services and Budgets and Planning and Environment and appointed the Chair and
          Vice Chair and Committee members;

Therefore, Be It Resolved That the Board rescind the February 02, 2009 motion establishing the Committee and appointees.

   B     THAT the Vancouver Park Board change the Planning and Environment Committee as follows:

Commissioner Sarah Blyth, Chair
Commissioner Aaron Jasper, Vice-Chair
Commissioner Stuart Mackinnon
Commissioner Ian Robertson

   C     THAT the Vancouver Park Board change the Services and Budgets Committee as follows:

Commissioner Loretta Woodcock, Chair
Commissioner Aaron Jasper, Vice-Chair
Commissioner Constance Barnes
Commissioner Ian Robertson

In-Camera Meeting

THAT the Board later this evening go into a meeting which is closed to the public, pursuant to Section 165.2 (1) of the Vancouver Charter, to discuss matters related to paragraph:

(k) negotiations and related discussions respecting the proposed provision of an activity, work or facility that are at their preliminary stages and that, in the view of the Council, could reasonably be expected to harm the interests of the city if they were held in public.
