Joe Coyle of Pyramid Network Services, LLC (Agent for Eco-Site, Inc.) has submitted an application to locate a 120’ tall monopole cell tower at 4628 Cedar Creek Road (owned by Scott and Patricia Akerlund). Eco-Site is proposing the monopole be within a 75’x69.50’ leased area that could allow for future collocations by other carriers. Access would be provided by a 12’ wide access easement coming off the existing driveway and an 8’ wide utility easement from Cedar Creek Road. The applicant has designated a ¼ mile search ring in its application. Pursuant to Wis. Stat. Sec. 66.0404(1)(r), a “search ring” is defined as “a shape drawn on a map to indicate the general area within which a mobile service structure should be located to meet radio frequency engineering requirements, taking into account other factors including topography and the demographics of the service area.”

Plan Commission Meeting: October 19, 2016
At the request of the applicant, the Plan Commission did not hold a public hearing or discuss the matter at their meeting on October 19th (the applicant was going to research other locations).

Plan Commission Meeting: March 15, 2017

Town Board Meeting: May 3, 2017
