Planning Commissioners OK cell tower plans

“There won’t be any impact on the pine trees, and with the height of this tower, the trees would have to be the height of a 16-story building to reach the antennaes,” Pfeiffer said.

The commissioners approved the project on the condition that the structure be lighted as required by the FAA; that repairing any damage to the new Clayton Road pavement from the construction and development of the tower be the responsibility of the tower’s builders; that the company provide space on the tower to support future county emergency services communications equipment; and that an exemption letter be provided by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection prior to the issuance of the development order by the county.

The project will move on to the county commissioners for their final approval at the Feb. 28 BOCC meeting.

In a workshop following the planning commission meeting, DeRuntz reviewed the county’s Future Land Use Map errors and omissions with the commissioners. He also provided a list of county residents who were seeking to change the zoning of their properties with the map changes.

The commissioners tabled the residents request until the March meeting due to two commissioners being absent.
