Mishawaka Common Council approves electric car dealership ordinance
MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- The Mishawaka Common Council approved the ordinance to allow an electric car company to open a dealership where the old JCPenney was located.
The council voted unanimously, eight to zero, to pass the ordinance with little opposition.
Although it has not been official which electric car company will occupy the space, many people in Mishawaka seem to be confident it will be Tesla.
“Is Tesla coming to Mishawaka? ‘High end electric vehicle’ brand to open up shop. Zoning approved tonight unanimously by Mishawaka Common Council. Stay tuned to find out who (though I suspect it’s the worst kept secret),” Mishawaka Mayor Dave Woods tweeted.
Regardless of the company, council members are adamant that the dealership should have “Mishawka” in the title of the location rather than “South Bend” or “Granger” getting the association in the title.
