Stakeholder Spotlight — City of Northglenn

July 10, 2023

Dri­ve Elec­tric Col­orado is excit­ed to share one of our Com­mu­ni­ty Part­ners, the City of North­glenn! With just over 39,000 res­i­dents and close prox­im­i­ty to the Den­ver Metro area, North­glenn has a dis­tinct qual­i­ty in its community’s plan­ning, devel­op­ment, and liv­abil­i­ty. North­glenn also incor­po­rates sus­tain­abil­i­ty efforts, as the com­mu­ni­ty is con­nect­ed by the Green­way Trail Sys­tem, which pro­vides over 35 miles of off-street walk­ing and bik­ing paths that con­nect to larg­er trail sys­tems that lead through­out the Den­ver metro area. This sum­mer, Dri­ve Elec­tric Col­orado will be part­ner­ing with the City of North­glenn to pro­vide EV show­cas­es and ride and dri­ves at their upcom­ing Neigh­bor­hood Nights 2023 series. Check out our EVents page to find the next Neigh­bor­hood Nights event this summer!

The City of North­glenn has also been work­ing towards elec­tri­fi­ca­tion efforts through its EV Action Plan adopt­ed in April 2022. This EV Action Plan will sup­port increased use of EVs through­out the City with a focus on the munic­i­pal fleet, pub­lic adop­tion, pub­lic charg­ing, and pol­i­cy. Dri­ve Elec­tric Col­orado works with the City of North­glenn through ride-and-dri­ve out­reach events, like the North­glenn EV Show­case we had back in August! This event, spon­sored by the City, was a great way to learn about EVs and what ini­tia­tives the City has to sup­port them.

Becky Smith, Plan­ning Man­ag­er at the City of North­glenn, described how “Northglenn’s vision is to reduce green­house gas emis­sions and improve air qual­i­ty through elec­tric vehi­cle adop­tion and infra­struc­ture that is inclu­sive, sus­tain­able, cost-effec­tive, and inno­v­a­tive. Part­ner­ing with Dri­ve Clean Col­orado has pro­vid­ed an oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­nect our res­i­dents with EV infor­ma­tion and oppor­tu­ni­ties to meet with EV owners.”
