How to find the charging station location once you have found the site:
3/10/02: Jasper's has closed, so is no longer a reference point. Chargers are next to valet parking. - TD
There are two pedestal-mount Gen II+ chargers (plus two conductive charging stations) near the front entrance that is at the Sears end of the mall, just to the right of Sears, in the main parking lot in front of the shopping center on Arden Way. The left-hand charger can be reached from three different parking spaces: the one right in front of the charger, the one to the right, and the one around the back of the charger.
The chargers have good signage (see photo), and are very rarely blocked. The right-hand charger can be reached from the spot in front of it, or the spot behind it, but only the spot in front of this charger is marked "EV Parking Only" at this time.

Good enforcement here, normally. See first photo for current signage. twd 4/07.
But there are always exceptions. Check this imposter, pretending to be an EV!
