Communication tower

Rogers Communications Inc. has public consultations underway for a new 104.9-metre (344-foot) guy-wired cell tower to be built on private land approximately 4.3 km west of Highway 97 at 105 Mile.

A group of concerned residents have initiated a door-to-door petition campaigning against a proposed mobile phone tower near Able Lake Road.

Notification packages were sent Jan. 30 to residences within three times the tower height (314.7 metres) providing owners with details on the proposal, but only the two residences adjacent to the tower received an information package in the mail.

For more information, contact to Rogers Communications and CRD planning officer Francesa Sanna at 175 Airport Rd.; 100 Mile House, B.C.; V0K 2E0, and to Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod at 118-475 Birch Ave.; 100 Mile House, B.C.; V0K 2E0.
