The Birmingham Parking Authority (BPA), in partnership with the Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition and featuring city, industry and regional planning officials, will hold a ribbon-cutting on Wednesday for a new electric vehicle (EV) charging station at its Avondale Village parking lot.

The ribbon-cutting will be at the Avondale lot, 109 41st St., on Wednesday, Oct. 18, at 10 a.m.

Andre Davis, executive director and CEO of the BPA, will be joined by BPA Board members, Birmingham city officials, Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition Executive Director Mark Bentley, and representatives of the Regional Planning Commission of Greater Birmingham, Alabama Power, and other business and civic groups.
