Received an nice email response from a gentleman in the building department for the City of Sonoma when I inquired about the recently updated Q3 2021 Map pin for Sonoma. He confirmed that a permit application was on file (but not if it was approved or issued) for the Sonoma Community Center at 276 East Napa Street and that it would include superchargers (but no info as to how many). About 3 blocks East of the square so a nice quick walk to the town center for coffee or a quick bite or wine tasting. A little ways off Highway 12 as it winds through town around the other side of the square.

Thanks for the info, I will check out the parking lot behind the community center.

Great intel! Long overdue for this area and what a great spot walking distance to the town square.

If that is indeed the address, I don't see any recent permits related when searching Sonoma County's permit database (I also cross-checked against keyword searches), but it may not have been issued just yet as mentioned. Will continue to monitor and see if it surfaces at Permit History Search | Permit Sonoma | County of Sonoma

If I am not mistaken, this charger would be permitted by the City of Sonoma, not Sonoma County. Your link above is for the County Permit Lookup.

I'm not sure that is true. If you look at the map of permits through the county's website, you can see many permits within the city of Sonoma listed. In fact, past permits have been pulled/issued/finaled against the exact address listed in the original post here, so not sure why they wouldn't surface in this database.

There are 3 permits, all sewer permits. I am guessing in the last 20+ years there has been a building permit of some other type. Sewer might be county controlled so it shows up on the county site. And the person I spoke to specifically said there was a permit on file. Which does not show up on the county search.

I just wanted to point out that the city website is not always the main source for permit indexing within a county. This may vary by county, but the permit I discovered for the upcoming Fort Bragg Supercharger location was listed within Mendocino County's permit database site. Had no such luck uncovering any details within the Sonoma City site but your email exchange sounds promising

Yes, some counties handle all permitting and that is evidenced when you try to find permitting information on the city website. If there is no mention of a building department then you go county. For a large county like Sonoma, each city will have it's own permitting department. Santa Rosa, Windsor, etc. For a small one (people wise) like Mendocino, it will probably all be handled on the county level.

Darnit, I was thinking this past weekend I should take a trip over the county line and see if any progress had been made. Merrill beat me to it. Great progress and 3.5 months for PG&E to make the Q3 deadline…

Those 2 mystery ones are Tesla pedestal bases without the rest of the cabinet installed on top.
