County planning commission approves cellphone tower

Posted

The Taos County Planning Commision met for a regular meeting Wednesday (August 14) to discuss a new cell phone tower near the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge.

The Commission unanimously approved the project’s special use application following over an hour of a public hearing. 

Neighbors spoke in opposition of the 50 foot tower and questioned the need for such a device in the area. 

Spokesman for the project Jerry Muldowney gave a presentation to the commission indicating a bump in cell phone service provided in the area. 

The tower will provide additional 4G coverage in the area surrounding the Gorge Bridge. 

This is a developing story.
