Resident comments on electric vehicle chargers to City Officials

April 7th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

A resident of Cumberland spoke with the Mayor and City Council during the public comment session regarding electric vehicle chargers and accessibility for those traveling through the region along Interstate 68.  Joseph Blackburn stated with today's super chargers, travelers can pull off the highway and charge their vehicle in just under an hour. Allowing them to shop or grab a bite to eat in downtown…

In a project with the city of Cumberland and Potomac Edison installing vehicle chargers in the North Liberty parking lot last year, the Cumberland Mayor agreed that maybe it's time to reevaluate charging stations in the city. 

WCBC news has confirmed that the Downtown Development Commission  Clean, Safe and Green Committee is tasked to evaluate grants and potential locations for vehicle charging stations. The newly formed committee is scheduled to meet later this month.
