City of Eagle Mayor & Council Say NO but Ada County Approves

Letter sent to Ada County

It is without question that there is strong opposition to this tower on residential property.  There is also an amazing "small town" character and rural appeal that is the heartbeat of our City of Eagle.  It is evident that not all share that same desire to savor that.  With growth comes great responsibility.  It is time that Ada County acknowledges it's cities Comprehensive Plans, and listens to each cities government officials/leaders.  If not, our uniqueness will be stripped.  Our City Council weighed-in on the placement of this tower and let Ada County know where they stand...with it's Citizen's.  We THANK YOU for your ongoing support and transparency!  There are City of Eagle Codes in place that are in violation of the placement of this cell tower.  This particular property is zoned Ada County RUT/Residential and surrounded by thriving, City of Eagle ESTATE RESIDENTIAL zoned neighborhoods.  Ada County property within the City Area of Impact must work in accordance/recognize City Codes.

Stan Bastian -Eagle City Council President states...

..."I am in agreement with that we should support the property rights of all individuals if their actions are not injurious to others. In this case, I agree with your concerns that building a 73 foot cell tower may be damaging to your property rights, values, and safety.  I respect your reasoning that the location of the proposed cell tower has a negative impact on those who live in the area and that there may be better property locations for a cell tower."...
