1908 - Saugus School District formed from sections of Newhall and Castaic school districts [story]


The city of Santa Clarita takes another step toward a more sustainable future with the installation of eight new level II electric vehicle charging stations throughout the city.

The charging stations are now available to the public at the cost of $.25 per kWh.

The EV charging station project was first proposed in late 2017. Over several months, city staff worked on the development of the project which included a comprehensive analysis of the EV marketplace, identification of funding opportunities and input from the community via survey, which generated over 400 responses.

In May 2018, staff presented the project for the City Council’s consideration and received approval to move forward with the design and installation of eight electric vehicle charging stations citywide.

In addition, the City Council authorized the pursuit of a grant opportunity with the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee’s Local Government Partnership Program.

After a successful grant submittal, the city went to bid for the design and installation of eight ChargePoint II charging stations at seven city-owned facilities, which included:

· Santa Clarita City Hall, 23920 Valencia Boulevard

· The Centre, 20880 Centre Pointe Parkway

· Old Town Newhall Parking Structure, 22551 9th Street

· Central Park, 27150 Bouquet Canyon Road (available soon)

· Valencia Heritage Park, 24155 Newhall Ranch Road

· Valencia Glen Park, 23750 Via Gavola

· Canyon Country Park, 17615 Soledad Canyon Road

In January 2019, the City Council awarded the design/build contract for the project. The design of the project was completed over the course of two months, with the physical construction of the stations taking place from April through June 2019. The project is now complete.

Through the city’s partnership with the MSRC, the city now has a total of nine EV charging stations at eight facilities, including the charging station installed at the Santa Clarita Metrolink Station in January 2019.

  1. Like Sacramento, where they have actually set up a traffic lane for electric vehicles, as per D.M.V., will l.a. county follow suit? Like traffic is not already a problem!
