One thing that you might think about is the old gambit this is what I
Write the city planner a letter, stating the date and hour of your meeting, the
purpose thereof, and the results. Then ask the question if this is what he

Sometimes this will make them think further, but it does give you something in

Anyone not need a permit to install their tower? - No permit Required
[ Double-click this line for list subscription options ]
So I called my local city planners office to begin the process of
getting a permit to install a tower on my one acre lot. We live in a
kind of agricultrual area, but more horse-country than agricultrial.
At first I'm told I'd need to get a "conditional use permit" to
install my tower. But later when trying to get more details of what
I'd need for the permit, I speak directly with the city planner who
tells me I don't need a permit at all because the city ordinance
requiring a "conditional use permit" is only for towers over 75'. And
since my tower is only 60', he does not think I need a permit at all.
He goes on to read from the ordinance, and explains that it
specifically exempts singe pole radio structures and the like under
75'. I'm a little concerned about the words "single pole" because my
tower is not a single pole. But a triangular tower with four guys
wires. I explain that to the city planner and he still says I don't
need a permit, if I keep the installation under 75'.
So my concern is, if I install my tower without a permit, and keep it
under 75'. What protection, if any, do I have if later someone
complains about my antenna and tower? Not that I expect it from my
neighbors but you never know.
According to the city planner, I can still get a "building permit" to
ensure the installation meets proper installation requirements, but
that it is not necessary. I'm kind of relieved I don't have to get
permit but wonder if I should anyway, or just go ahead with my
installation and see what happens.
Thanks for any suggestions
