AT&T proposes constructing cell tower near school
June 14, 2011
King County is considering a proposal from AT&T to build a 150-foot tall cell tower on the Sammamish Plateau near Endeavour Elementary School.
The telecommunications company applied for a permit from the King County Department of Development and Environmental Services to build a tower for cellular antennae and a shelter for equipment at 26325 S.E. 39th St., about a mile northeast of the Klahanie Center shopping complex and less than a half-mile from the elementary school.
The county permitting agency is in the process of determining potential environmental impacts of the projects. Residents can send comments about the environmental impacts to DDES — Building and Fire Services Division, 900 Oakesdale Ave. S.W., Renton, WA 98057-5212. The public comment period ends June 30.
Residents can also review the applications and any environmental studies at the Renton office.
