Update: Ymca Seeks A Cell Tower: Would It Be Safe?

Decision made on controversial cell tower

Theres also fire. Equipment at the base of cell towers has to be tended, and welders working on it have occasionally wrought havoc. And the fires theyve started seem unusually difficult to put out. A January 2009 fire that ran all the way up a Wellesley, Mass., monopole softened the base to the extent that it broke at the bottom, and fell like a log. Several people caught the relatively rare incident on video. A similar incident occurred in Howell, Mich., in 2007. Witnesses were quoted at the time saying that the pole was about to fall from its base, but was caught by guide wires. Amy Connolly, then Howells development director, said Nov. 21, At the time, (six) years ago, an electrical contractor was working on the monopole. Somehow, fire started in the monopole, and the tower was in flames, and it did fall, but not all the way to the ground. It showed me the reason why fall zones are a good idea. Connolly, now Tinley Park planning director, said shes not trying to tell anyone what kind of ordinance they should have.

Global communications company Crown Castle has nixed its plans to build a 317-foot cellphone tower in Bluewater Bay. Attorney Lauralee G. Westine, who represents the company, told Okaloosa County officials Monday that Crown Castle instead has decided to replace an existing cell phone tower on Nelson Point Road. Bluewater Bay residents welcomed the news. I think thats wonderful, said Jack Brooks, who lives on Lido Circle near where the tower would have been built. We are totally relieved. Brooks said news of Crown Castles latest plans has spread across Bluewater Bay. Weve invested a lot of time in trying to fight this, he said. It was something that didnt belong in a residential area. Crown Castle leases the cell tower land on Nelson Point Road from a local resident. Westine told county officials Crown Castle has reached an agreement to take down the existing guyed tower and replace it with a self-support tower of the exact height. The tower supports antennas for multiple law enforcement, fire and rescue agencies.

City wants to regulate cell tower placement itself


But the proposed tower was harshly criticized as an unacceptable eyesore by a tight-knit group of Escondido residents living just outside the park along the northern face of the 1,150-foot mountain. That area is supposed to be for the deer and the hawks and the other animals, said resident Tisha Bennett, adding that wildlife has steadily rebounded in the area since it was scorched by the 2007 fires. Bennett said Tuesday that allowing one tower might eventually lead to several more on the pristine mountain. We cant have this place start looking like Mt. Woodson, she said, referring to a mountain in Poway featuring several antennas near its peak. Clay Tyler, who launched an online petition against the proposed tower early this month, said Tuesday that the residents are different from typical homeowners complaining that something could ruin their views. In 2002, they jointly contributed nearly $800,000 so that the San Dieguito River Park Conservancy, which works with the joint powers authority to acquire land for the park, could buy the entire mountain and prevent a developer from building 80 homes there. Tyler said the residents were promised their contributions would guarantee no development of any kind. If it didnt violate the letter of our gift, it violated the spirit of our gift, he said. It would be completely inappropriate to have a large cell tower there. Dick Bobertz, executive director of the river park, sent an email to the city last week saying the project wouldnt move forward.

27, 2013 @ 4:45 pm Osage Beach Osage Beach, State Rep. address cellular tower bill Social News A letter outlining the city’s concerns with proposed cell tower legislation should be on the desk of Rep. Rocky Miller by now. The Osage Beach Board of Aldermen last week gave its approval to the letter, which the city hopes will reiterate the its desire to regulate the placement of wireless towers more.. within the city limits. Legislation initiated by Representative Miller during the last legislative session ended up with much different language than he anticipated, and city officials say the wording takes away their ability to regulate towers. The Cole County District Court struck down the bill, saying the title was unconstitutional. An appeal of the court’s ruling is expected, according to City Attorney Ed Rucker, although he does not expect a ruling before the legislative session begins next month. The legislation will probably be reintroduced in January. The city took a pro-active approach to the bill’s language, asking Representative Miller to visit with aldermen and city staff last month. As a result of the meeting, the city decided to draft a letter outlining its concerns and specific language that would benefit municipalities.
