Attorney Matthew Harris, of Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis, requested a decision on its plan to erect a cell tower at 1455 Stuart Ave. be delayed.
Cleveland Community Development Director Greg Thomas said the Verizon site plan needed revising to show the tower site is located out of the stream buffer, and that it meets the minimum setback requirements. The tower must be located at least 200 feet from adjacent residential zoning as measured from the centerline of Stuart Avenue.
The cell tower is suitable under the commercial highway zoning district; the remaining question is determining if the property is big enough for a monopole tower.
Also delayed until the January 2011 meeting was a review of the city’s cell tower ordinance. That discussion was delayed to allow city staff more time to finish work on a revision.
Commissioners approved the only other agenda item, which was a request by Greg Calfee for preliminary plat approval on Stonebriar Townhomes Lot 24, a .29 acre townhome subdivision on Stonebriar Drive N.E.
Stonebriar Drive is located off Michigan Avenue Road near the foot of Blythe Ferry.
