On October 18, 2017, the Mayor and Commission approved Resolution No. 2017-30048, authorizing the Mayor and City Clerk to execute an agreement with Tesla Motors, Inc. to install, operate, and maintain Super Charger Stations at certain municipal parking facilities at the sole expense of Tesla for a term of ten (10) years.
The agreement is structured as a concession agreement with a ten (10) year term. Pursuant to City Charter Section 1.03(f), it must be approved by the Planning Board by a 4/7th vote and subsequent approval by the Mayor and Commission by a 6/7th vote.
This referral is on the April 25th agenda in order to timely meet the Planning Board's notice requirements for their meeting on June 26, 2018. If approved favorably by the Planning Board, an item would then be placed on the July 25, 2018, City Commission meeting. This timeline provides the greatest expediency to execute an agreement with Tesla and their installation of Super Charger stations at the Pennsylvania Avenue Garage in the Fall of this year.
