In the spring of 2012, the Tuscany Community Association received notice that Rogers Wireless was planning to erect a cellular tower on the east side of 12 Mile Coulee Park, near Villa d’Este (click here for details). The plan created a bit of a stir with some residents, and on April 26, 2012, Rogers Wireless arranged an open house at the Tuscany Club to engage with our residents. The TCA also solicited feedback from the community and sent responses to the proposal to Rogers and the City of Calgary (click here to see the responses). The TCA recently received notice from Rogers Wireless with a revised plan to construct a cellular tower in the community. The location and type/height of the tower have changed, to address some of the community’s concerns. The details of this plan that were provided to us by Rogers are provided below. The new location is further […]
The following letter was sent to the City regarding the TCA’s position regarding the proposed Rogers cell tower. Although not expressly stated in the letter, one of the board’s main concerns was the proximity of the proposed tower to the Villa D’este condominiums. This concern was raised in various communications to city officials. The TCA is committed to working with Rogers and the City to find a location for the tower that minimizes adverse impacts to the community and the 12-Mile Coulee.

Residents of Tuscany: please note the error in the brite-sign posted within our community announcing the Rogers/Telus/Wind Mobile open house to discuss the 200 ft cell tower that is under consideration for construction within our community. The sign incorrectly states that the tower will be along Stoney Trail, but the proposal we received states it will be built along Tuscany Blvd within 12 Mile Coulee Park. The Tuscany Community Association has contacted Rogers Wireless to request that the correct information be posted on the sign.
The deadline for Tuscany residents to file support, objections, recommendations for alternative sites, or suggestions for alternative technologies for the proposed Tuscany cellular tower is May 25, 2012, as the public consultation period ends 30 days after the Rogers Wireless “open house” in our community. Our community has not been invited to voice its concerns as a group at the April 26th “open house” organized by Rogers Wireless. The Tuscany Community Association will not be directly advocating a position regarding the proposal, but concerned residents are encouraged to voice their opinion to Rogers and industry regulators. Tuscany residents concerned about the proposed Rogers cell tower may also visit http://celltower.ca and contact firstname.lastname@example.org for resources.
