A community meeting will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 28, regarding an application for a new cell tower structure on top of the Carmel Valley Library. The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Carmel Valley Library.
The proposed wireless communication facility will consist of 12 antennas, 24 remote radio units and associated equipment concealed in an addition to the library, according to a notice sent to homeowners from the city.
Suzanne Bacon, the president of the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library group, expressed concerns about how the antennas would impact the library and the community.
“While I don’t know exactly what the tower would look like, I can’t imagine it would look very nice and that would be a shame considering how much was just invested in repainting the library and how much our community treasures our library,” Bacon said.
The item will also be discussed at a Carmel Valley Community Planning Board meeting for its recommendation, but has not been scheduled yet.
