The Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG) held their annual awards ceremony for the Central Oklahoma Clean Cities Coalition on Wednesday, May 26.  Phil Jones, the City of Edmond’s Sustainability Coordinator, was named as the 2020 Stakeholder of the Year for his accomplishments in promoting and deploying alternative fuels and advanced vehicle technologies.

“The award represents Phil’s dedication to implementing the City’s Sustainability Plan and his willingness to work with other City Departments and regional partners to accomplish the goals of the plan,” said Director of Planning Randy Entz.  “Phil’s work is a great example of how the City is moving the needle on its goals of becoming a resilient, sustainable community.”

In honoring Mr. Jones, ACOG specifically cited his integral role in the installation of a network of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations around Edmond and implementation of bicycle/pedestrian infrastructure projects through an ACOG grant.  The grant funding and subsequent work includes six EV charging stations that were installed in 2020 and the current project to implement dedicated bike lanes along Ayers Street.
