Montecito Planning Commission to Review Antenna Systems


Per a 5-0 vote by the Board of Supervisors on 7/8, the Montecito Planning Commission (MPC) will provide input on revisions made to antenna system additions ​— ​proposed for the community by Crown Castle, an agent of Verizon ​— ​before the board makes its decision on the project in August. The MPC denied the company’s proposal in May, citing aesthetic incompatibility, which prompted the company to take its plans ​— ​which have seen nearly 150 changes ​— ​before the supervisors on 7/1. Supervisor Salud Carbajal has implored Crown Castle to seriously consider his constituents’ concerns, especially given many Montecitans’ claim that cell-phone coverage is adequate.
