BLOOMINGTON, Ill. — On Wednesday, the Bloomington Zoning Board of Appeals will consider a petition submitted by Tesla to allow vehicle sales.
The facility would be built at 420 Olympia Drive in Ward 8 and will also service the vehicles.
City Planner Katie Simpson is asking the board for a special use permit for the plan. Staff are requesting the commission approve the plan.
If approved Tesla could build on more than an acre of land at Towanda Business Park.
In the project description, leaders explain the area could see a lot of shoppers and the Tesla dealership would serve customers with distinct needs without negative impacts on the neighborhood, adding the product itself produces less hazardous waste than traditional vehicles.
