Two cell tower projects, one with a height of 100 feet and the other coming in at 93 feet, are set for construction sometime this spring in metro Colorado Springs.
Members of the El Paso County Commission have given the green light to the construction of the taller structure, set to go up at the 39-acre site of the Falcon Middle School at 9755 Tower Avenue.
That tower, upon completion, will be surrounded by a 7-foot tall wooden fence.
The second project will go up at the 30-acre site of the Woodmen Hills Elementary School at 3663 Woodland Hills Drive, some 10 miles to the west of the Falcon Middle School project.
That tower will be protected by a 6-foot tall cyclone fence.
Both projects, defined as free-standing commercial mobile radio service facilities, are being developed by the Denver-based Centerline Solutions.
That company, founded in 2000, specializes in developing mobile phone infrastructure. Its customers include government entities, private industries, and major wireless providers.
