  • Last evening the San Marcos City Council approved a 35 foot high – 12 antenna cell tower at the end of Antilla Way and Orion Way in San Elijo.

    Only Chris Orlando voted against the cell tower but failed to convince his fellow council members to kill the AT&T cell tower. This cell tower will be placed next to the shorter and smaller T-Mobile tower at this site.

    The residents were able to spark debate between the City Council and City Planners over obvious permit violations on the current T-Mobile cell site. If we cannot trust the City to police obvious permit violations on the current T-Mobile site, how can we trust important factors like the RF emissions are correct. Even with these violations the Mayor and City Council approved the AT&T cell tower.

    Residents stressed to the City Council that if they approve this cell tower Verizon, who withdrew their permit to see if the AT&T tower is approved, will also be at this site creating a “cell tower farm” just over 100 yards South of the intersection of Twin Oaks and Double Peak Road.

    Please email so we can build a list of residents to fight this cell farm just a few hundred feet from homes in San Elijo.
