Jul 19, 2017

Seattle has overcome the obstacles to create a protocol for EV charging stations located in the public right-of-way.  Evan Corey, New Mobility Program Manager for the Seattle Dept of Transportation announced:  We are officially opening the application process. Chris Bast of Seattle’s Office of Sustainability & Environment, and the City’s Drive Clean Seattle coordinator, will serve as your EVCROW application coordinator. Chris will ensure the necessary reviews and application steps are completed in a seamless and timely manner. Given the volume of permit requests, please expect approximately eight weeks for applications to be reviewed and permits to be issued.

So there you have it.  The application process is laid out in this document for EVCROW  

It is quite a process, with fees for this and that, but we are on our way to a major transportation change.  Let us know if you have any questions about this new permitting option.
