City Notified that the Deal for Cell Tower in Yavapai Hills Been Dropped

Property Owner has “no interest” in placing a cell tower in Yavapai Hills

The City of Prescott has been notified that lease negotiations between a local property owner and the representative of a telecommunications company, have ceased. 

In a message to the telecommunications representative, the property owner’s attorney stated that the property owner has “no interest” in pursuing the lease agreement that would place a cell tower in the Yavapai Hills neighborhood.  

At a study session on Tuesday, April 13 at 1 p.m. Prescott City Council will review proposed changes to the City’s Land Development Code that would discourage building of cell towers in residential areas, while incentivizing construction in commercial and industrial districts.  The proposed changes include other provisions designed to minimize impact on residential areas, and reduce number of new towers by stating intent for co-location (sharing) of towers wherever possible.
