      Showdown between C Spire and Germantown residents over cell tower proposal postponed
      After Germantown residents gear up for fight, C Spire asks for more time

      By Sara Patterson

      Friday, November 9, 2012

      After Germantown residents in the Poplar Estates neighborhood geared up to challenge a cell tower proposal at Tuesday's Board of Zoning Appeals meeting, C Spire Wireless asked the city to push back a decision on the matter until January.

      An online petition circulating through the neighborhood had garnered more than 100 signatures by Friday.

      In late October, C Spire representatives met with about 25 residents in an effort to ease worries that erecting a tower inside an existing Memphis, Light, Gas and Water Division transmission line at Forgey Park would cause harm to anyone's health, property values or enjoyment of the dog park.

      "I was very disappointed with the first meeting," said resident Wayne Graves. "I thought we'd go and have a sit-down discussion with the city, but it didn't

      Tensions between C Spire Wireless and Germantown over construction of cell towers in residential areas reached new heights this week, with court filings and a neighborhood meeting for Poplar Estates residents planned for Monday.

      C Spire recently filed a civil action lawsuit against the city for denying its application to erect a cell tower on the grounds of Faith Presbyterian Church on Poplar Pike. The Mississippi-based company made a deal with Faith Presbyterian to lease the land and construct the tower, which was to be disguised as a church bell tower.

      But in a city known for its meticulous sign ordinances and scrutiny over aesthetics, the Board of Zoning Appeals unanimously rejected the application after residents raised concerns about health, safety, property values and aesthetics at the September

      My family and I do not want the additional eye sore installed in front of our house and our neighbors property. I have lived with the dog park in front of my property in which is only a matter of feet from my back porch. We are not a dumping ground for anything Germantown or anyone else wants to expose us to. We have our rights to be able to live without all the congestion behind us. We NEED PRIVACY....We have maintained our property to Germantown's laws and regulations and kept up our property that we are proud of. I don't think it is right in order for the city to make extra money (even though we pay taxes with little say as to what goes on in this city). Put the tower on the hill behind the park where you have all the other transformers and etc. Or somewhere else that we don't have to be reminded of every day of an ugly tower, plus other unnecessary additions to decrease our property value.

      Me and my immediate nieghbors have already been forced to live with the noise and unsightly conditions of a dog park. Now,to add a cell tower to the dog park is entirely to much to force upon our privacy. Not to mention the impact it will have physcologically . and our property value will plummet.
