Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station Make-Ready Requirements for Multi-Unit Dwellings (MUDs)

New MUD developments with five or more units must designate 15% of required off-street parking as electric vehicle (EV) make-ready parking spaces. Prior to occupancy, EV charging stations must be installed in 5% of off-street parking. MUDs must then install EV charging stations in an additional 5% of parking spaces within 3 years of occupancy and another 5% within 6 years of occupancy. MUDs may install make-ready parking spaces and EV charging stations at a faster rate than required. Throughout the installation of EV charging stations in make-ready parking spaces at MUDs, at least 5% of EV charging stations must be accessible for people with disabilities.
