Kamloops, a small town in the interior of British Columbia, is developing an electric vehicle (EV) and electric bike strategy, and they are looking for input from local residents that will help build their roadmap to transitioning to electric-powered transportation.
The strategy, which is meant to develop “targets, policies and actions”, will help the local government determine how they can influence EV adoption and use.
Resident can take the five minute survey on the City of Kamloops website, which covers such topics as the challenges of driving an EV, to asking to show your level of support for new building code rules that would make EV charging infrastructure a requirement. That is something that both Saanich and Nelson in BC have already adopted.
The survey is open until February 28, 2020. They hope to have the final strategy developed and adopted by the end of March 2020.
