Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations to be Installed Beginning Thurs., June 7

The impact

The City of Decatur, ChargePoint LLC, and Craft Electric & Maintenance will be installing Level 2 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations — one in the North McDonough parking loop in downtown Decatur, one in the Oakhurst Village — beginning Thursday, June 7 (downtown) and Monday, June 11 (Oakhurst).

Dates are subject to change based on weather and related circumstances. Installation of both stations should take about one week.

Once installed, each station will be able to serve two parking spaces. For the first year of operation, there will be no charge for the electricity at these stations. However, vehicles will still be subject to the existing two-hour parking limit and regular downtown parking fees for the North McDonough station.


How to manage

Minor impacts to on-street parking are expected at both locations during construction, though vehicle circulation should remain unaffected.
