Tools and Resources for EV Station Planning

Toolbox Tuesday


In January 2021, SCAG kicked off the Electric Vehicle Charging Station Study (EVCSS), partnering with 18 cities to help jurisdictions promote development and deployment of EV charging infrastructure to accelerate transportation electrification. This Toolbox Tuesday will share the resources developed and lessons learned to support cities throughout the SCAG region. This includes policy guidance around station permitting; outreach materials and findings; EV planning guides for cities and property developers; a regionwide Site Suitability Analysis to target areas for future EV charging infrastructure, and initial conceptual plans for site locations. This toolbox Tuesday will share tools to meet cities where they are, with a focus on increasing EV infrastructure in traditionally underserved and hard-to-reach communities including multi-unit dwellings (MUDs) and Disadvantaged Communities (DACs).

Toolbox Tuesdays provide training on a range of practical skills and knowledge for local planning practitioners including training in the use of technology and education for practical approaches to timely issues. All classes and webinars are COMPLIMENTARY for staff of SCAG-member local governments and other SCAG partners in Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura Counties. Private sector planners, non-profit staff, academics and students are welcome to attend.
