Update on Proposed Rogers Cell Tower in Tuscany 1

RogersRevisedIn 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 from residences, so community consultation is not required by government regulations with respect to this proposal. The TCA has requested that Rogers and/or the City of Calgary provide information directly to residents who live near the cell tower site.

    Frankly this concerns me. I find it odd that being 100m away from a residence means you do not need to consult with the community, but by law must be 300m from a school. Kids live in homes and spend more time there than at school. Typical government/corporate bamboozling. Studies have shown long term health problems associated with cell towers, but we are to believe the telecommunications industries versions of things. How sad. When I first moved here I was very happy with where I lived, but bit by bit I have seen that deteriorate, and I have lived here less than 2 years.
