Electric Vehicle Parking Permits


Convenient electric vehicle charging access is offered 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 allowdaily 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.

Electric Vehicle Charger
The EV Parking Permits program is currently paused due to the installation of solar panels on the roof of the Granada Garage.  When construction is complete, Downtown Parking will resume issuing EV Parking Permits.  

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.
