Hi, all concerned:
I wanted to post this on what I remember as the old ham-law reflector, but
it seems to be gone with the wind . . .
Quick swerve to the chase:
Easing of tower and antenna zoning in Colerain twp, a suburb of Cincinnati,
OH, is turning out, for me at least, to be only part of a larger challenge.
My 96-ft self-supporting tower building permit is approved by the building
inspections dep't, but is being held hostage to unrelated issues by the
county health dep't.
The county health dep't is requiring that, in the case of properties with
septic systems, like mine, the systems be "brought to grade" before *any*
building permit will be issued.
I see this requirement as unreasonable and inequitable, and thus, perhaps
vulnerable to a PRB-1-style challenge, because it applies only to those with
septic systems who apply for a building permit, and not to all whose
What it could open up is a "discovery" that my septic system is operating
improperly and thus unlicensable, despite its having been "inspected" and
re-licensed in the spring of this year (after payment of $85). My
across-the-street neighbor has gone through several hassles like this in his
backyard projects, and his projects are going to cost him at least $13000
extra for a new waste disposal system, as his was "inspected" and found
he applied for construction permits.
Your thoughts, please.
TIA & 73,
