IV.   Wireless Telecommunications Facility Project Proposal

Bill Lewis presented a proposal from Anthem Telecomregarding the installation of communications towers for internet and cellservice.  This project is at the feasibility stage.  If given tentativeapproval the company will provide applications with locations, style of tower,and property owner agreements for approval.  The towers can be made to looklike pine trees or other “stealth” design.  They need only be above the treeline enough to get coverage for the area.  They will not be tall towers likethe ham radio towers in the Highlands Ranches. 

The Architectural Committee recommends that theBoard of Directors approve the concept.  Additional internet service andpossible cell phone coverage is desired by many Highlands residents.
