EV Infrastructure Study

StanCOG Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Study

StanCOG's 2022 Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Study aims to build upon statewide efforts related to EV infrastructure and provide guidance for EV infrastructure installation in the Stanislaus region. The study includes an analysis of existing EV infrastructure availability, forecasts for future demand of EVs and EV infrastructure, and recommendations to meet forecasted demand. The study will be used to identify implementation strategies, develop cost assessments for each implementation strategy, locate potential sites for EV infrastructure, and contain a prioritization methodology for recommended EV charging site locations. A link to the final document is provided below:

Final Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Study - March 2022

Measure L

Measure L is the Transportation Ordinance and Expenditure Plan approved by Stanislaus County voters on November 8, 2016 . The measure raised the sales tax in Stanislaus County on April 1, 2017, by one-half cent for a total period of 25 years to improve our local streets and roads, improve connectivity and reduce congestion.

Measure L includes strong taxpayer safeguards to ensure that the projects and programs approved by the voters are funded and delivered. A Citizens Oversight Committee has been created to provide an enhanced level of accountability for expenditures made under the Plan to ensure that all voter mandates are carried out and that the financial integrity and performance of the program is maintained.
