Telus is holding a public information meeting tonight regarding the placement of a new cell tower in Forest Grove.

The proposed location for has been changed, due to public concern with the original location. CRD Area H director Margo Wagner says

“When the tower was originally going to be sighted at the Forest Grove Firehall, there was such a huge outcry of concern from the parents about the proximity from the school,” said Margo Wagner, CRD Area H Director.

The new location is on private land donated for the purpose and should give further range to the tower as well as being in an isolated area.

“They found what I think is a perfect location,” Wagner said.

“It’s actually 400 feet higher than the where the firehall is located; it’s on a bluff above Forest Grove.”

The public information meeting takes place tonight at 5:30 pm at the Forest Grove Community Hall.
