Multi-Unit Dwelling Electric Vehicle Charging

1.5 MB
Year:
2020
Theme:
Electric Vehicles
Description:
Multi-unit dwelling (MUD) residents in apartments and condominiums often have more challenges in gaining access to home EV charging due to parking issues and cost. Renters in MUDs have additional barriers to long-term investments in charging infrastructure for shorter-term housing. Approximately 36% of Chittenden County housing units are in MUD communities and of those 86% are rental units, so overcoming these barriers is critical to meeting energy and equity goals.  VEIC worked with CCRPC and Drive Electric Vermont stakeholders to develop a survey to gauge MUD property owners’ interest in EV charging infrastructure and better what resources and assistance may be most helpful in supporting them. This report concludes with several recommendations for resources, outreach and education to address barriers and empower MUD owners and residents to move forward with EV infrastructure plans.

Railyard Enterprise Project Supplemental Scoping Final Report

4.8 MB
Year:
2020
Theme:
Transportation
Description:
In early 2013, the City of Burlington, in partnership with the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission and in close cooperation with the Vermont Agency of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration, initiated the Railyard Enterprise Project (REP). The REP aims to address multimodal safety, mobility, and operational transportation issues and to advance economic development opportunities in the southern waterfront area of Burlington by improving access and mobility through new urban streets. The REP followed an enhanced scoping process under FHWA’s Every Day Counts/Planning and Environmental Linkages (EDC/PEL) initiative. The result of the REP Scoping Study was the selection, by the Burlington City Council, of three REP alternatives to advance into preliminary engineering and permitting under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), a process required for using federal funds to finance transportation projects. This REP Supplemental Scoping Study is a follow-on to the REP Scoping Study and its goal is to further refine and evaluate one of those alternatives, Alternative 1B, and to explore the feasibility of implementing the project without federal funding, using state and local funds only, thereby needing to conduct a complex, lengthy, and costly NEPA process.
