Beechmont Cell Tower and Options

A new 154-foot cell phone tower is being proposed for the Beechmont area by T-Mobile. The tower is to be constructed on property owned by St. John Vianney Church on Southside Drive. There will be a hearing to discuss the matter this Wednesday, January 21. The hearing will be held downtown in the old jail building, and starts at 1pm. Click HERE for directions.

HERE is the story, courtesy of the Courier-Journal.

In today's society, these monstrosities are necessary evils, but there are some interesting ways in which other communities are dealing with the towers' "sore thumb" appearance. Check it out HERE. Maybe the folks down at the Louisville Metro Development Review Committee should see this information, or an ordinance placed before the Metro Council to encourage these types of solutions.
