The action plan will consist of mitigating climate change and reduce emmissions by reducing the number of gas-powered single occupancy vehicle trips across the Gorge. They hope to see this goal by supporting and increasing transit ridership to transit, shuttle, and parking solutions.

They also want to see public direct current (DC) fast charging is available at least every 25 miles along I-84 or SR-14, and 50% of Urban Areas have public Level 2 or DC fast charging stations. There is no mention on who will pay for these but claims to already havve a strategy for for desired locations and types of charging stations, as well as partnerships in place to implement them by 2030.

I didn’t want another email in my inbox but I also didn’t want a paper copy, the members only section was a great alternative for me. I can access all the information in the paper and keep my inbox clutter free .
