T-Mobile Cell Tower Update

Word on the street is the T-Mobile is retreating from its proposal to put a so-called “stealth” cellular phone tower next to the tennis courts at the Crystal Lake Park District’s Ken Birk Park.

Putting the proposal on “hold” was the phrase used.

You see, they want to investigate other options.

Where else might T-Mobile be looking?

Near the Crystal Lake Country Club’s maintenance facility near Barlina and Golf Course Roads is one location that may be under consideration.

My guess is that would require a special use permit, too, which would bring an entirely new neighborhood into the local political arena.

Taken during the high water in August, 2007, I think I pointed the camera in the direction of the Crystal Lake Country Club’s maintenance building. If so, the tower would presumably be visible above the trees.
