Planning Commission to hold Public Hearing on Installation of Cell Phone Tower in Merriwether

web posted May 5, 2014

EDGEFIELD The Edgefield County Planning Commission will hold a public hearing regarding allowing a 310 foot cell phone tower to be placed on West Five Notch Road on property adjoining Copeland Circle off Murrah Road. Comments will be accepted at the meeting on Thursday night, 6 pm, at the County Council Chambers.

The agenda states the purpose as follows: "Public Hearing for the purpose of receiving written and/or oral comments for the approval of a Conditional Use Permit Application to allow for a 310-foot Telecommunications Facility on Property Located at W Five Notch Road (Parcel 126-00-03-038-000), Edgefield County, South Carolina."

Following the public hearing is a vote to approve the "conditional use permit" to allow the tower to be installed by the commission.

Edgefield Daily has produced the above capture of the location of the property, colored red, though the exact location of the tower has not been provided. According to measurements taken using the Edgefield County's GIS mapping system, the tower is located less than 310 feet from any adjoining property on West Five Notch or Copeland Circle no matter where it is placed.

No public notice of the meeting was provided to Edgefield Daily until the release of the agenda for the meeting on Thursday, May 1. 

All those interested in the matter are invited to attend the meeting.
