September 05, 2017

In honor of National Preparedness Month, the CALBO Emergency Preparedness Committee urges the CALBO Community to review these resources to enhance local government and statewide emergency preparedness, response, and recovery efforts following as disaster.

We have observed and experienced the importance of emergency preparedness, especially with the recent California wildfires and Hurricane Harvey. It is only through our efforts and sacrifices that we are able to serve our own community and those communities in need.

If you have any questions, please contact Committee Chair, David Gonzalves with County of Tuolumne.

CALBO's AB 1236 Tool Kit - New Resources for Small Jurisdictions!

August 04, 2017

AB 1236 Tool Kit: Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Ordinance and Staff Report Templates for Small Jurisdictions

As you are aware, Assembly Bill 1236 (2015) requires all local jurisdictions to adopt an ordinance with an expedited, streamlined process for permits for Electric Vehicle Charging Stations. The effective date of the ordinance is September 30, 2017 for jurisdictions with a resident population less than 200,000.

PLEASE NOTE: Templates are provided for your suggested use and are written for either City or County Jurisdictions. You may consider adopting an ordinance as either an Administrative Ordinance, where it would reside in your administrative chapter of your Municipal or County Code, or a Technical Ordinance, where it would be among your technical chapters. An advantage of an Administrative only Ordinance is that you will not have to create new Chapters due to legislative changes. This Bill also requires jurisdictions to publish a Checklist that is based on the Governor's Office of Planning and Research "Plug-In Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Permitting Checklist" of the "Zero-Emission Vehicles in California: Community Readiness Guidebook". 

In considering either template, please consult your City Attorney or County Council accordingly.
 
As always, CALBO seeks to create communication and consistency among jurisdictions.  We hope that you find this AB 1236 Small Jurisdiction Tool Kit useful. The templates and timeline for Large Jurisdictions (resident population more than 200,000) are found here
