It’s Farm Country and AT&T has lots of places to put a new cell tower, but for some reason it’s insisting on placing it right in the middle of several small properties in Oregon City. The fight is on as they’re on to the next step in trying to keep that Cell Tower out of their neighborhood.
In December representatives for AT&T wouldn’t even testify at the hearing on this. Written notice was barely given to families on New Era Road 50 people signed a petition against the tower many of them appeared at that meeting. The outcome Application Granted. Cindy Morton and Shiela Hornecker have done their homework on this
Families on that road are already have cancer They’ve lawyered up and have filed an appeal with the land use board of appeals (LUBA) they’re prepared to fight AT&T tooth and nail to get them to move the tower someplace else. Realtors have told the neighbors anytime a cell tower goes up in a residential area property values go down about 20 percent.
