    Tesla Hearing for Richmond Store
    Thursday, March 31 @ 9:00 am ET
    DMV Headquarters: 2300 West Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23269

    And here’s the official notice that was published on DMV website and in newspapers:

    NOTICE OF TESLA MOTORS, INC. HEARING ON OPERATION OF DEALERSHIP BY MANUFACTURER

    The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), pursuant to Va. Code § 46.2-1572(4), is conducting a hearing to determine whether Tesla Motors, Inc. a Commonwealth-licensed motor vehicle manufacturer, may also be licensed to own, operate or control a new motor vehicle dealership in Richmond, Virginia. The formal evidentiary hearing will take place on Thursday, March 31, 2016, starting at 9 A.M. at DMV’s headquarters located at 2300 West Broad Street, Richmond.

    The issue to be discussed at the hearing is whether there is any dealer independent of Tesla Motors, Inc. available to own and operate the dealership in a manner consistent with the public interest. Tesla Motors, Inc. will maintain the position that no such dealer exists and that the public interest is served by allowing Tesla Motors, Inc. to operate the dealership.

    Any party interested in this matter is invited to attend the hearing and may provide relevant information.

    Will be there too. I forwarded the e-mail to a few other owners and a couple of others plan to attend. Should be a good sized group.

    Sorry I couldn't make the meeting, I was returning from Vienna with my new Model S. How did the meeting go? Is there another hearing scheduled? Is there something we can do in the interim?
