Bend City Councilors got an earful Wednesday night about changes to a cell tower ordination. City staff is proposing to allow companies to locate broadcast or cell towers in residential areas, but only through a conditional use process: “We try to really provide an incentive of making it an easier process to site these types of facilities in areas such as industrial areas.” Bend City Manager Eric King says several members of Awbrey Butte told Council about past experiences with the Awbrey Butte Tower Farm. They are concerned about proliferation of towers in residential areas. King says staff does not want to totally forbid towers in residential areas, but companies would have to make a case through a conditional use proceeding.
