A.

Consideration of a Resolution Approving the 80' Lattice Type Cellular Tower Special Use Permit

The petitioner, Union Telephone Company, is requesting consideration for Special Use Permit approval for the construction of an 80' lattice type cellular tower to be located at 380 Uinta Drive. Special Use Permit review and approval is required for the height and type of the proposed wireless structure. The Planning & Zoning Commission considered this request on June 9, 2021. After discussion and consideration of all evidence, the Commission recommended approval of the Special Use Permit (4-1-1) Vice-Chair Brown abstained and Commissioner Knight opposed. 

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the resolution granting approval of the Special Use Permit filed by Union Telephone Company for the construction of an 80' lattice type cellular tower to be located at 380 Uinta Drive, Green River, Wyoming.

The Parks and Recreation Department along with the Engineering Division of Public Works seeks authorization to submit an application for a WYDOT Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) Grant to replace the concrete pathway at Riverside Memorial Park and add pathway lighting. The project would replace a .42 mile loop of concrete pathway that is in poor condition and add lighting, a long-time goal of the Council.
