EV Charger installation requested for 2203 Park Ave
November 3, 2021
City Council Bill (20-0573) was passed to grant a franchise to the Baltimore Gas and Electric Company (BG&E) to install, operate, and maintain electric vehicle (EV) charging stations on Baltimore City right-of-way and park properties. PABC works with BG&E to identify locations for EV charging stations that fit a number of criteria including being publicly accessible at all times and having minimal impacts on parking.
The new EV charging station location that they would like to install is on either side of the grassy median near 2203 Park Ave. A resident of Reservoir Hill had requested an EV charging station in the area, and BG&E, PABC, and Baltimore City Parks and Rec worked together to find a viable Reservoir Hill location. PABC believes 2203 Park Ave is a good location for EV chargers because it affords 24/7 access, it is near interstate 83, it is in an area of high residential density (where many residents do not have a garage or parking pad to use for home charging), and it is within an Equity Zone (one of the census tracts within the city that is in the lowest quartile for household median income).
The chargers will take up four car-lengths of currently unregulated parking, two spaces along the east side of the median and two spaces along the west side of the median.
