On January 26, 2011, Mayor Wild presented Mr. Jeffrey Spoon and Westland Colonial Village with the coveted Mission:Green Eco-Award. The award was presented to Mr. Spoon for installing the first electric vehicle charging station in Westland, also one of the first in the metro Detroit area.
Plenty of folks were on hand to help Mayor Wild celebrate this wonderful achievement including Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano, County Commissioner Joan Gebhardt and City Council member Adam Hammons.
Everyone gathered in the clubhouse of the Westland Colonial Village Apartments located at 8181 N. Wayne Road for the award ceremony and then afterwards were gathered outside to witness the ribbon cutting and view the operation of the charging station on a brand new Chevy Volt electric vehicle brought to the site to see the Charge Point America in action.
Mayor Wild noted that Westland is a City that values being “green” and that installation of this electrical vehicle charging station is a continuation of Mission:Green’s goal of making Westland Michigan’s greenest City.
