The discussion of Mobility at the February 26th Strategic Planning Session begins at ~2:49:49. The purpose of the Strategic Plan is to link in a list of three to five year priorities the city's day to day operations and annual budget to the long range Master Plan(s).

EV Charging Stations
Electric charging stations where installed in 2011.
- 5 downtown (1 on-street)
