Council Upholds P&Z Veto of new Cell Tower on Eastside


Pinnacle Consulting on behalf of Verizon Wireless requested a conditional use permit to construct a cell phone tower at 3500 N. 4th St., on the Trinity Church property. The Planning and Zoning Commission voted 6-0 to deny the conditional use permit. An appeal of the conditional use permit was on City Council’s agenda last evening. City planning staff and Pinnacle Consulting both made presentations. Council also heard public comments from many neighborhood residents who opposed the construction of a cell tower. Council voted to uphold the Planning and Zoning Commission decision and did not grant the conditional use permit.
