About this rescheduled meeting
There are a couple of EV-Ready related legislative bills, currently being considered by State Legislators, that could directly impact the ability for Portland to require developers to install EV-Ready infrastructure in new and existing buildings. As a result of the uncertainty of these bills, we are postponing the meeting that was originally scheduled for 10:00 AM on Tuesday, February 23rd to Tuesday, April 6th at 10:00-12:00. Postponing this meeting allows the project staff time to further track the proposed bill progress and adjust our project scope and timeline accordingly.
Thanks so much for your flexibility and understanding. We look forward to connecting with you in April.
