The Milton City Council granted T-Mobile South permission to build a cell phone tower, but with restrictions, and turned down the company's request to build two other towers.
The council voted Monday night to allow construction of a tower at 13302 New Providence Road as long as T-Mobile submits an engineering plan for wind load requirements and the tower doesn’t exceed 100 feet. T-Mobile wanted to build a 150-foot tower.
The city community development, which recommended denial of the request, must approve that tower’s design.
The council rejected requests to build a 145-foot tower at 2880 Mountain Road and a150-foot tower at 14495 Hopewell Road. Four-foot lightning rods were planned for all the towers.
