South Bend, Indiana – June 13, 2012 – Horvath Communications has received zoning approval to build a cellular tower in Blue Mound, Kansas. Approval was granted by the Blue Mound County Commission on Tuesday, June 4th, 2012.
The site faced zoning challengers, as it required a conditional use permit and faced two public hearings. It also faced some push-back from area residents. According to Trevor Wood of Selective Site Consultants (SSC), who represented Horvath at the zoning hearing, “The challenge faced was in regard to unsubstantiated health impacts associated with towers from adjoining property owners.” The Planning Commission ruled in favor of the tower site with a 5-1 recommendation of approval, and the County Commission voted 3-0 to approve.
The tower site is to be located near Botkin Road, just south of Highway 31. It will offer cellular coverage for the town of Blue Mound, Kansas and its residents. Multiple cellular providers will have access to the infrastructure, allowing them to offer 4G services to the community. This is part of a larger build-out plan Horvath is undertaking throughout the state of Kansas, as well as other parts of the country. The tower will likely be constructed by August 2012.
