I really don't know who this should be send to for it to be acknowledged by the right people.
I just wanna start out and say I am a huge fan of both Tesla motors and Musk. For me, Elon is a grown mans hero and I didn't even realize that was possible outside of being a child.
Now to the point of this threads creation. I heard that Tesla motors could possibly be expanding in the future and Im sure there is a possibility who ever searches for sites is already aware of this location.. If not, here it is in the slight chance this might be seen by that right person.

The former Chrysler Kenosha Engine Plant property is 107 acres in size and located at 5555 30th Avenue in the heart of the city. Approximately 3,700 residential-related properties – of which 2,400 are single-family homes – and eight schools located within one-half mile of the plant. Its general boundaries are:
52nd Street to the north;
60th Street to the south;
24th Avenue to the east; and
30th Avenue to the west.
Over the years, a series of mergers and buyouts changed the company name several times – Nash Motors, Nash-Kelvinator and American Motors are a few examples. Eventually the Chrysler Corporation bought the site, and in 1998 Chrysler itself was bought by DaimlerAG, which owned the site until 2007, when Cerberus Capital Management bought the company (see Time Line tab for more information). The facility produced a number of famous vehicles and their parts, including Nash Ramblers, Dodge Diplomats and AMC engines used in Jeeps.
While the mass assembly portion of the automotive industry declined in southeast Wisconsin in the late 20th and early 21st Century, the Kenosha Engine Plant actually saw brief periods of success. While Chrysler closed the Kenosha assembly and stamping plants in 1988, they kept the engine plant open. In July 2002, Chrysler dedicated a 500,000 square-foot expansion to launch a new 3.5-liter V6 engine used in the Chrysler Pacifica. The launch marked the completion of a three-year expansion at the plant priced at $624 million. However, that growth was short-lived and, when the recession hit in 2007-2009, the plant became another industrial casualty after Chrysler declared bankruptcy. The engine plant shut down in the fall of 2010.
The plant is currently owned by Old Carco, a bankruptcy liquidation trust, after the Chrysler bankruptcy proceedings were finalized in May 2010.
The trust, as owner of the engine plant, is considered a “responsible party” under the state Spill Law - s.292, Wisconsin Statutes (Wis. Stats.) – and is required to take the necessary response actions. Any new purchaser of the engine plant would be a responsible party under state law for the contamination issues at the site, including off-site contamination (please see the Chrysler Bankruptcy and Liability sections below for more information).
The DNR is working with the city of Kenosha and the city’s partners – the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Kenosha County Health Department. The partners have identified the Kenosha Engine Plant for environmental assessment and possible cleanup. Potential contamination issues associated with the plant may be similar to other contamination found at former automobile properties in Kenosha, properties that were eventually cleaned up and redeveloped.
