I was talking to one of the people on the neighbourhood council at the supermarket yesterday and she was talking about a cell tower application from Sprint to put a tower in the "triangle median" at Vanowen St and Fulton Ave in Valley Glen. When I looked it up on the VGNA's website there were not one but three applications, which I assume means there will be three providers colo'ed on one tower -- it's a very small median. It will be disguised as a flagpole. I want to know who the other two applicants are. It can't be Cingular, because they just put a tower in the steeple of the Orthodox Church at Ethel and Vanowen, three blocks east of the "triangle". I tried calling the city councilwoman's office, and they didn't know; tried calling the neighbourhood association office, and they didn't know; tried calling the county supervisor's office and THEY didn't know; tried calling the planning commission and was told that if I didn't have a case number there was no way for them to look it up. Google failed me; the GIS system for the City of Los Angeles is impossible to use efficiently. Suggestions? I'd really love for it to be Verizon, since coverage is a little spotty in our house (100 metres away). By the way, the Valley Glen Neighbourhood Association aren't planning on opposing the tower; they have asked Sprint to provide some landscaping and a bench or two to make it into a little mini-park. If I were Sprint, I'd pay the extra $1,500 or whatever to have a nice easy tower for once!
