Install a Mobile Tower in Northeast Marion County, Oregon (Little North Fork Drainage)

The residents and visitors of northeastern Marion County, Oregon, are looking to improve communications and safety in a forested, rural zone located along the Little North Fork of the Santiam River. The above map shows the "supposed" coverage of AT&T signal within this area. The red box shows the area that NEEDS coverage for public safety.

The Little North Fork and the Opal Creek Scenic Recreation Areas, located in northeastern Marion County, and in the Little North Fork Watershed, near the township of Elkhorn, is home to nearly 10 thousand visitors annually and is a popular summer destination for many families. Although we are a rural area with a small year round population, we feel it’s imperative to build our infrastructure in the coming years for the safety of our summer guests. A critical element in this future infrastructure is the need of a mobile phone tower.

The lack of broadband service and cell coverage creates a situation that is not ideal for keeping our community safe. In the event of a serious incident that requires EMS, fire department, local and state police officers, the majority of visitors cannot use their mobile phones at all.

The health, welfare, social activities, business economics and public SAFETY will all be enhanced by building a new mobile phone tower in the area. Increased cell phone coverage will enable successful economic growth and the ability to employ better emergency tactics in the future. 

Please join us in our quest to have a new mobile phone tower built and begin to move the Little North Fork Watershed to a strong and healthy infrastructure for both year-round residents as well as our many guests that support our area.
