Cell Tower Disguised as Pine Tree Plan at Pasfield Gold Course Scrapped


It appears that a large cell phone tower… disguised as a giant pine tree… will not become part of the landscape at Pasfield Golf Course.

 

The State Journal-Register reports that park district officials have discovered that the 1967 grant which was used to purchase the course contains a provision that prohibits such commercial use of the property.

 

AT&T had wanted to erect the 100-foot tower on the property, and vowed to camouflage it to make it look like a large tree.

 

But neighbors had objected, saying the tower would be an eyesore that would reduce their property values.
