Letter to the Editor: Cell tower meeting

Dear Editor:
This is a reminder to all interested parties that the continued hearing for a special use permit for a cell tower on the Golf Course/Flag Creek road will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. at the RBC Administration Building.
Our issue is not whether the community would benefit from better cell service. We just hope as the need for technology continues to grow in our area, we have had the foresight to locate the structures needed for this in the best possible area. We know once a tower is constructed it becomes a vehicle for other antennas to be co-located on. We get the feeling that this is the only site that has been considered for this structure. Is this because the initial cost to build there would be much less or because it is the only location that will meet the needs of the contractor? The county master plan identifies the proposed tower area to be high density residential in the future. This, along with possible air safety issues make us hope that some serious consideration will be given to a less controversial location.
This scheduled hearing is your opportunity to express any questions, comments or concerns you may have.
Thank you,
Les and Sue Sprod
