Washington Residents Seek Stricter Cell Tower StandardsComments Off on Washington Residents Seek Stricter Cell Tower Standards
Members of the Yakima, Washington community have sought out stricter standards of cell phone towers, which is why there is a public hearing at the Planning Commission tonight to let both sides share their views. The telecommunications companies believe that stricter regulations will make it difficult to install new towers at a quick pace, which will hinder their ability to keep up with the demand for wireless service.
Currently the city of Yakima has very limited regulations when it comes to the construction of cell phone towers. The residents want to restrict cell tower standards to maintain the aesthetic appeal of the community as well as the property values.
