Your restrictions sound similar to what I faced when I put up my
tower. I also needed approval from special zoning commission and
support from neighbors living within a certain radius of my property.
Any one of them could have vetoed the project.
What worked for me: I met with each of my immediate neighbors and
showed drawings and photos of the location of the tower/antenna and I
discussed their concerns. When I felt comfortable that noone would
oppose the project, then I went forward with the formal approval
process. By the time the letter came out (I think it was
automatically issued by the city zoning committee), there were no
surprises and noone objected.
If you think there is a chance that one of your immediate neighbors
will oppose your project, you don't want to wait to find that out
until you're at the city meeting.
