Commission fails to approve Palo Cedro cell tower

Commission fails
to approve Palo
Cedro cell tower
By Sharyn
The Shasta County
Planning Commission
on May 14, 2015, with
only three of its five
commissioners present, failed to pass a
motion to approve an
80-foot tall monopine
cell tower near the intersection of Boyle
and Deschutes Roads,
but the applicant, Michelle Ellis of Complete Wireless, said
she would immediately
refile the application
to get on the Commission’s
June 11 agenda.
Senior Planner Kent Hector told the Commission that
the 80-foot tower proposed
for a 2.7 acre parcel owned
by John Stanberry at 10422
Deschutes Road, would be
surrounded by native oak
trees, one of which was 68
feet tall, so only 12 feet of
the tower would show above
it. He said that photo simulations showed the tower designed to look like a pine tree
would not be visible from
Deschutes Road, but would
be visible from Boyle. He
said the cell tower would fill
a coverage gap in the area
and the Planning Division
Volume XVI, Number 10
May 21, 2015
recommended approval.
During the public hearing on the cell tower four
neighbors spoke out against
the project and two others
had written letters of opposition that were in the Commissioner’s packets. Three
of the residents, Tom Zaharris and Patrick Mahoney
who live on Fire Mountain
View Road and Joel Turner,
all urged the Commission
to deny the use permit application because the fake
tree would ruin their view
of Mount Lassen, which was
one of the main reasons they
had bought property where
they did. “The view of Mt.
Lassen is spiritual to me,”
Mahoney said. “It’s critical
to our lifestyle, what we live
here for, and this will take it
away from us. Put the tower
somewhere it won’t affect
anyone’s view.”
Sherry Melton, whose
property adjoins Stanberry’s
said one of her primary concerns was possible damage
to her property and livestock
if the tower was struck by
lightning. She said she had
read about towers conducting lightning into the ground
with such force that appliances in neighboring residences were damaged. She
was also concerned about the
noise from the 30 KW standSee Cell tower page 9

Drive-thru car wash
proposed for Palo Cedro
By Sharyn Cornelius
The owners of the Chevron Station in Palo Cedro,
Kumar & Sons, Inc. of
Redding, have requested
an amendment to their use
permit to construct an automated, drive-through car
wash on their one-acre parcel in the northeast quadrant of the State Route 44/
Deschutes Road intersection. The site currently
contains a mini-mart and a
gas station. The proposed
1,163-square-foot car wash
building would be situated
to the east of the mini-mart
and buffered from the residential area to the north and
east by a six-foot high concrete block wall at the property line. There are three
developed residential properties adjacent to the project site and one additional
residence within 300-feet.
The nearest residence is approximately 60-feet from
the carwash entrance and
will use a water
that clarifies up to
90 percent of the
waste water from a
wash cycle for use
in the next wash
cycle. Water for
the carwash will be

Jones Valley CAB discusses by-laws revision
By Sharyn Cornelius
The Community Advisory
Board for County Service
Area #6—Jones Valley Water discussed president Bert
Stead’s suggestion for revising their by-laws to authorize
a five-member board rather
than the current seven member one. Stead said he believed the change would make
it easier to have a quorum and
he didn’t intend to remove
any of the current seven members, just not replace them if
they dropped off the Board.
Board member Larry
Olkowski, who was recently
re-elected to the CAB after a
hiatus of several years, said
he remembered some quorum
problems when the Board had
only five elected members
and the quorum was still four,
but he would like to see the
CAB remain at seven with all
active members. Peter Scales
agreed. “The more people involved the better.”
The CAB voted to table
the vote on the proposed bylaws change to the June meeting to give everyone more
time to think it over.
In order to increase public
awareness of and participation at their monthly meetings, the CAB would like the
Department of Public Works
to publicize those meetings on
water customer’s bi-monthly
bills, but they have not gotten
any response to their requests.
Peter Scales said he could
put up signs to advertise the
meetings if they wanted him
