Electric Vehicle Parking PermitsPublic Works


The City offers convenient electric vehicle charging access in select Downtown Parking lots.

In order to encourage a greater adoption of electric vehicles the City is piloting affordable Electric Vehicle (EV) Permits at the Granada Garage for downtown employees, businesses and residents that allow daily access to vehicle charging for employees of the downtown core. Permits are provided at a discounted rate and do not include ChargePoint fees. Additionally, the pilot is limited to the 30 EV stations located on the roof of the Granada Garage. Further discounts are available to applicants who qualify for the Clean Vehicle Grant.

Commuter permits allow an EV driver to park and charge their vehicle in one of the designated spots on the roof of the Granada Garage between the hours of 8am and 6pm, without the need to be actively charging. This differs from the other EV chargers in City lots, which currently require the user to be actively charging. So this pilot program avoids the four-hour shuffle! These permits benefit from a significant discount on monthly permit fees and do not include Chargepoint vehicle charging fees.

24/7 EV Permits allow residents or business to use their permit to park and charge their vehicle 24 hours a day, and also allow vehicle storage for up to two weeks at a time. This permit is ideal for downtown residents or for businesses that use electric vehicles. Permits are provided at a discounted rate and do not include ChargePoint vehicle charging fees.
