A cell tower in Marine is one step closer to reality following passage of a conditional use permit (CUP) and a variance request by the city’s Planning Commission.

The Marine on St. Croix Planning Commission held a public hearing regarding a variance request for construction of a 4G cell tower at the city compost site. The hearing was held to specifically and only for the variance request.

What is clear here is that this whole cell tower discussion is moving entirely too quickly. MOSC should add at least 4 more focus groups as well as full assessment of the the opinion of the local fauna. He anyone asked the squirrels in William O'brian for their input? I think not. We need at least four more years of discussions and votes to get this right.
