Sustainable Infrastructure Projects

Morton Civic Center Stormwater Management

In late 2015, the Morton Civic Center public parking lot underwent a complete renovation, which included rebuilding the parking bays and utilizing a variety of stormwater management practices to reduce runoff treated by the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District’s (MWRD) treatment plants.

Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations

There are a variety of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations located throughout Evanston to encourage the use of hybrid and all-electric vehicles. All public, private, and residential charging stations can be found using PlugShare’s interactive map on desktop or by downloading their app.

Pesticide Free Parks

In April, 2015 the City of Evanston announced the first pesticide-free parks pilot program with Adopt-a-Park partner and local business, Greenwise Organic Lawn Care, and Midwest Grows Green partner, Midwest Pesticide Action Center. Signs are posted in each of the five participating parks that say they are "Pesticide Free Parks."
