Park will not be cellular tower site

By on May 9, 2010

MAPLE PARK—The Maple Park Village Board on Monday voted against allowing a U.S. Cellular tower on village-owned park property next to the Civic Center.

The company had proposed renting the site from the village for $800 per month.

“The village is looking at ways to supplement its budget, but this site is not appropriate, and (locating the tower there) would not meet the requirements of the zoning code,” Village President Kathy Curtis said.

U.S. Cellular is considering other locations on private property in the village for the 190-foot pole.
