AB 1236

Government Code § 65850.7

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Requires city and county governments to approve applications for the installation of electric vehicle charging stations through the issuance of specified permits unless the city or county makes specified written findings based upon substantial evidence in the record that the proposed installation would have a specific, adverse impact upon the public health or safety, and there is no feasible method to satisfactorily mitigate or avoid the specific, adverse impact. The bill requires electric vehicle charging stations to meet specified standards.  Although this bill does not apply directly to homeowner associations, Boards are advised to diligently respond to requests to install Electric Vehicle Charging Stations regardless of whether a city or county permit has been issued.
