Cell Phone Tower – Variance Granted

On March 10, 2015 the Cobb County Board of Commissioner GRANTED Municipal Communications LLC’s application seeking two variances to allow for the construction of a 150-foot “monopine” telecommunications tower on the River Heights Exchange (Walton Apartments) property – SLUP-14 (2014).  Attached is a document created by the commission that explains the Procedural Background, Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law, Decision of the Board (with Dissent by Commissioner Bob Ott) and includes appendixes. The Board of Riverview Overlook objected to the variances.  The board attended and testified at the two hearings and submitted a letter in opposition, as did our neighbors at the Willows.  Unfortunately the variances were ultimately granted. The Board will follow up to make sure all the requirements, stipulated between Municipal Communications LLC and the Cobb County Commissioners, are followed. Cell Phone Tower_Decision
