History of the Cell Tower Plan

The company that plans to build the tower contacted several local property owners during 2013-14, but these neighbors refused to consider the offer. These are landholders who either reside on their land, or who care about the value(s) of their land and their community.

The property is neglected and abandoned.

Currently, there are junk vehicles, an uninhabited mobile home, dilapidated outbuildings, and abandoned cock shelters on the property.




Who would this cell tower affect?

Cell Tower Permit Applied for in Catoosa County, Georgia; proposed tower on property at the Walker County line.

A 189′ tall cell tower would be placed at the top of Napier/Watoosa ridge, and would be visible for miles in all directions.

This permit application affects anyone who lives or travels within view of Napier Ridge (Watoosa Ridge), near the Catoosa and Walker County lines in Georgia.

  • Because the Special Use Permit  would require a variance from current Catoosa County, Georgia law, it directly affects ALL Catoosa residents.
  • Because the cell tower would be located on property at the Walker County line, it would directly affect many Walker residents.

Please study the maps on this page for more information.
