We are very pleased to report that last night, shortly before 10 pm, the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approved by a vote of 4-1, our appeal of the Planning Commission's denial of our request for a 70' stealth cell tower. This means that our cell tower project can move forward as requested. This is a huge win for the greater Las Campanas community, and this new stealth tower will provide owners, visitors, employees and workers with enhanced cellular services for your convenience, work-at-home, safety and security.
A key factor in the Commissioner's decision was the overwhelming support by the Las Campanas Community. Over 400 letters of support were received by the County, and dozens of owners participated in the series of community meetings and public hearings. Everyone should share in this acknowledgement for a job well done!
A special thanks goes out to the Las Campanas Cellular Committe including Margaret Hoban, Dennis Little, Kay Lee, Al Antonez and Robert Kiely for persevering through the challenging (and long!) approval process.
We are grateful to our District 2 Commissioner Anna Hansen not only for her emphatic "yes" vote but also for her leadership in getting the motion passed, and to Constituent Services Liaison Sara Smith for guiding us through the difficult County process. Please feel free to send a note of appreciation to:
Going forward, the process will be obtaining the final order, permitting, then groundbreaking, construction, inspection, test and finally turn-up of services. Although we do not have an estimated completion date yet, we will keep you appraised of progress as we move towards in-service.
Additionally, the Cellular Committee is in search of 1-2 new members with experience in residential or commercial construction, permitting or inspections as we move into the permitting and construction phase. Should you have interest in volunteering, please contact Cellular Committee Chair Robert Kiely firstname.lastname@example.org.
