Drove by here yesterday. There is active construction going on in the dirt lot circled below. Very early on, just moving dirt and digging footings, but could be related.

I also know the economic director cited in the minutes above. I’ll connect with him and see if there are any more recent updates.

My guess is that's for the car wash which was also mentioned as coming to the shopping center. But it certainly could be for the superchargers, especially if this is going to be a big station. My base expectation is for a station of 12-16 stalls, which isn't large enough to need a lot that size, but I could be wrong. The list of things I would ask the director about are: # of stalls, location of chargers in the center, and whether they've already applied for or been issued a building permit.

The construction I noted is indeed the car wash. I have a note out to the economic director asking about the supercharger status.

Mark Hamilton, the city’s economic director says:

Thank you for the email. Hope you and the family are doing well. The car wash is what you see currently under construction. The 12 Tesla chargers are planned to be installed in front of Little Caesar’s Pizza. Tesla has pulled the permit, but has not started construction.

So. Who knows? On Tesla’s timeline I guess, but the permit is issued. I drive by this center almost daily, so will keep an eye out.

The new Tesla map update shows Chowchilla with an opening target of Q2 2022 (not sure if it was on there before or what date it might have had). I personally tend to read their target dates as which quarter to hope construction actually starts in, as opposed to when the site opens. But if they intend to hit their target, construction may have to start soon-ish.
