Cell site rejected

The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board voted to reject a new Verizon Wireless facility on Village Center Loop Road in Pacific Highlands Ranch, 15-1.

Christian Clews was the sole dissenting vote.

The ground equipment was a problem for the board as the facility would have required two five-foot -wide equipment cabinets on the 15-foot-wide sidewalk in front of a future neighborhood park.

“This is the heart of our town center,” said board member Manjeet Ranu. “The sidewalks are 15-feet wide because there’s supposed to be a lot of people walking there. This is the wrong place for this utility.”

The board said they were disappointed that Verizon could not find a way to move the equipment off the sidewalk or place the equipment in an underground vault.

A Verizon representative said neither of those alternatives were possible.
