Calgary community groups fight northwest cell tower plan
Proposal to double the size of a cell tower on 14th Street meets resistance from locals
Cellphone providers Telus and Rogers would also have access to the tower.
Kris Olsen, president of the Rosemont Community Association, said the old tower would have to be taken out because the proposed 35-metre tower is "huge."
"For all of us who aren’t metre people, it's 120 feet, equivalent to a 10-storey building," said Olsen.
The communities say the tower could be moved closer to the nearby Confederation Park Golf Course, land owned by the city, because Calgary recently changed its policy allowing for towers on public land.
