Title

Amending Section 12-1131 of The Philadelphia Code, entitled “Electric Vehicle Parking,” to impose a moratorium on new electric vehicle parking spaces, under certain terms and conditions.

 

Body

THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA HEREBY ORDAINS:

 

SECTION 1.  Section 12-1131 of The Philadelphia Code is hereby amended to read as follows:

 

§ 12-1131.  Electric Vehicle Parking.

 

                     *     *     *

 

                     (3)                     Designation of Electric Vehicle Reserved On-Street Parking Space.

 

                                          (a)                     After an investigation determining need has been performed through the Philadelphia Parking Authority with the information set forth in subsection (3)(b) and the Parking Authority has approved of use of the location for practicality and feasibility of traffic operations, the Philadelphia Parking Authority may designate a reserved on-street parking space for electric vehicles. Such a reserved space shall not be designated at any location where parking is otherwise prohibited by law.

 

                                          *     *     *

                                           

                                           (c)                     The Streets Department shall cause appropriate signs and marking to be placed in and around electric vehicle parking spaces, indicating prominently thereon the parking regulations. The signs shall state that the parking space is reserved for the exclusive use of electric vehicles from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., non-electric vehicles shall be authorized to park in the electric vehicle parking space for no more than two (2) hours between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., and that violators are subject to a fine and removal of their vehicle.

 

                                          (d)                      Notwithstanding the provisions of this subsection (3), effective with the adoption of the Ordinance adding this subsection (3)(d), the Parking Authority shall designate no additional electric vehicle parking spaces, pending Council’s review of the impact of these spaces on overall parking availability and enactment of further legislation. During such moratorium on new spaces, all existing Electric Vehicle Parking spaces shall be designated as exclusively reserved for Electric Vehicles only from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., and non-electric vehicles shall be authorized to park in electric vehicle parking spaces for no more than two (2) hours between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
