City Nears Cell Tower Agreement

Yakima city leaders are getting closer to lifting a moratorium on the construction of cell phone towers.

Yakima City Manager Tony O’Rourke says the city’s Built Environment Committee has come up with a plan for the construction of the towers.

O’Rourke says the city wants more control over where the towers are located. He says the current requirement that there only be a city staff review for a cell tower location isn’t enough.

“We know the towers have big impacts on local neighborhoods when they’re located in those areas. We just want better control over when and where those towers are built.”

O’Rourke says they’ll soon present a plan to the city council that calls for a more comprehensive review of the location of cell phone towers. The city is also reviewing the construction of new billboards in the city.

Back in April the city imposed a six-month moratorium on new billboards and cell towers until a plan is approved by the city council.
