Chipotle Mexican Grill will be built on the vacant pad you see as you exit Starbucks drive thru.

In Season 2, Episode 88 of TehachaPod we talk with Jay Schlosser, the Development Services director. We have a conversation about the new business and residential developments coming to Tehachapi in the coming months.

Jay talks in detail about two new eateries coming to the corner of Tehachapi Blvd. and Tucker Road, one is Roundtable Pizza and the other is Chipotle Mexican Grill, which will be built on the vacant pad you see as you exit Starbucks drive thru. Also, the Valley Strong Credit Union will be opening very soon in that same center.

New construction for businesses including another Starbucks will be taking place in the Capital Hills area north of Highway 58, near the post office. The Marriott Towne Suites is planning on opening by the end of 2021. There will also be a couple of businesses who will be going through remodels, and we talk about businesses relocating from the Antelope Valley that will be calling Tehachapi home for their operations.

We ask Jay to talk about proposed new housing developments in the city of Tehachapi and where they are in the process. Jay talks about growth and how strict guidelines for any new development are in place for responsible development and he explains why certain businesses are seeking Tehachapi as a place to call home.
