Cell Tower Hearing - Boulder Creek Golf Course

Friday, February 05, 2016
9:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Event Type:
Location Details:
701 Ocean Street, Room 525, Santa Cruz

Deny the application # 131042 for a Cell Tower at 13260 Big Basin Way, Boulder Creek, CA

We do not want a cell tower centered in the middle of our scenic residential community. The proposed location will be highly visible for all residents. And it is within a 300 ft. radius of many homes, as illustrated by the aerial photo above. It will be placed in the center of the golf and tennis area, which is one of the least aesthetic locations for a number of reasons. It will be quite visible for those golfing, playing tennis, and residents who walk and drive past it daily. Not to mention the residents whose view will now permanently be affected by it. This is the CENTER of our neighborhood, so it will be seen by all who visit. It will reduce the beauty of our mountain community and lower real estate values.
