Cellular Equipment towers were a topic of discussion in several neighborhoods last month. A new facility has been proposed for Northeast 23rd Avenue at Stanton Street, in Irvington. In the Beaumont-Wilshire neighborhood, an application to install a tower proposed for Northeast Fremont Street at 37th Avenue had not been submitted at press time, but is still pending.
Finally, in Alameda, a mediation session between neighbors, cell transmitters and the Fremont Methodist Church concerning a tower on Northeast 26th Avenue, south of Fremont Street, has reportedly reached at least a tentative conclusion. The company will install new equipment to make the tower less visibly intrusive, and noise buffering to quiet an equipment cabinet on the church property. In return, neighbors will tone down signs on their property that have stated their candid, and unsympathetic, view of the church.
