Planners to tackle cell tower request

Plans for a 38 acre agricultural preserve near El Dorado Hills and a request by Cingular Wireless to build a 180-foot cellular phone tower in the Kyburz area will be discussed by El Dorado County planning commissioners Thursday.

The agricultural preserve proposal, brought forward by Andrew and Elizabeth Standeven, would rezone the property that is zoned for residential development to exclusive agricultural use. The property is located on the west side of Mesquite Court, less than a mile north of the intersection of Tripp Road in the El Dorado Hills area of the county.

Staff has recommended approval of the zone change.

The commission will also hear a request from Cingular Wireless to allow construction and operation of a 180-foot monopine cellular tower and buildings. The proposed site sits on 31 acres and is located along the south side of Wildwood Way, northeast of the intersection of Highway 50 in the Kyburz area.

Staff is recommending approval with conditions.

Commissioners will meet Thursday, beginning at 8:30 a.m., at the Building C Hearing Room, 2850 Fairlane Court in Placerville.
