    In January 2017, the State of Iowa submitted a proposal to Electrify America offering sites for level 3 charging stations. Of those, three lined up with Tesla "Coming Soon" pins on the Find Us map: 904 Cardinal Ave in Dows IA (now a Tesla supercharger site), 11 or 12 East Street in Shelby IA, and two sites in Altoona IA. Now we have the following from the minutes of the June 5th meeting of the Shelby City Council:

    In addition, the convenience store at the site is up for sale with the following included in its on-line sales flier:

    While I can't find the word "supercharger" associated with this project, between a) the involvement of the Zoning Board and the City Council, b) the sales flier promising a charging station coming by November, and c) the Tesla Coming Soon pin it seems very likely that this will in fact be a supercharger.

    12 East Street, Shelby IA 51570

    OK, anyone with leads on Sioux City, IA. If they're going to build in Shelby, IA, they have to be looking at Sioux City, IA. Shelby, IA to Sioux Falls, SD is 183 miles.

    There was a rumor that superchargers were going to be installed at the Hy-Vee in Sioux City last summer or fall. Obviously that didn't happen but Hy-Vee would still be a good first place to check.
