Planning Commission denies variance for proposed cell tower
Board suggests denial of tower’s special use permit
Planning Nov. 16
After neighbors raised concerns about visual blight with a planned cell tower near the Lumpkin County line, members of the Dawson County Planning Commission denied a variance for the structure on Nov. 16. During the meeting, they also recommended the Board of Commissioners deny a special use permit for the structure at that board’s Dec. 16 voting session. The tower’s proposed location is on property off of Ga. 52 near its intersection with Wesley Chapel Road.
