Des Moines Church Wants Verizon To Put Up Cell Tower Disguised As A CrossComments Off on Des Moines Church Wants Verizon To Put Up Cell Tower Disguised As A Cross
First Presbyterian Church of Des Moines wants to obtain a permit to allow Verizon Wireless to construct a 120-foot communications tower that will be disguised as a cross. The church applied to the Zoning Board of Adjustment for a conditional use permit for the tower.
Emily Schettler of the Des Moines Registerreported that, “The permit is necessary because the church property is only 6.88 acres and the city requires a 10-acre lot for a communication tower. The board meets at 1 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall.”
