Agenda: Public Hearing Items

1.         Class III Tower Permit #2013-007 – Mrs. Cheryl Taylor / AT&T

Consideration of a Class III Tower Permit application by Mrs. Cheryl Taylor for the proposed construction of a 130’ monopole with low-profile mounted antennas. The property is identified as Tax Map #6-A-124, an 81-acre property owned by Ms. Adalea Polastro, located in Afton at the end of Sunrise Drive. The applicant has submitted a Request for Exception to Zoning Ordinance Section 20-7-2e. Because the application does not comply with the requirement that no tower shall be located within one (1) air mile of a designated Virginia Scenic Byway, the applicant seeks an exception for 0.29 air miles of distance between the proposed tower site and Rockfish Valley Highway.
