Even permits may not stop a neighborhood uproar.
Subject: [TowerTalk] DEED RESTRICTIONS FOR ANTENNAS
Date: Sat, 5 Mar 2011 17:52:51 EST
I got this advice from a pro (K1VR, who is a lawyer specializing in these
matters). IF THE CITY DOES NOT REQUIRE A PERMIT, TO GET A LETTER ON
OFFICIAL LETTERHEAD STATING NO PERMIT IS NEEDED FROM BOTH THE ZONING AND
My deed restrictions in the area I am building are very nebulous...same
crap about noxious activites/nusiances and all that sort of baloney.
However, nothing about antennas/towers or height rerstricitons. Five or
the neighbors upon seeing all the activity on the lot I just bought were
asking all sorts of questions and eventually sent me a certified letter
they were P.O.ed about any towers that would be over 40 feet and that
multiple towers were even worse. The letter was sent after they contacted
lawyer. I heard through the grapevine that their lawyer told them nothing
could be done. We'll see. I don't think they'll be very happy with three
199.999 foot rotating towers.
My adivce is to visit K1VR's site and perhaps pick up his book that has
lots of good advice on these matters.
YMMV. Good luck.
