New telecommunication tower proposed for Mission

Public information meeting scheduled for 7th Ave. project

The district has received another request for a new telecommunications tower in Mission.

Cypress Land Services Incorporated has submitted an application, on behalf of Freedom Mobile, for a proposed wireless telecommunication facility on 7th Ave., adjacent to 7494 Mary Street.

Their application suggests replacing an existing streetlight with a new streetlight connected to the communications facility. That would almost double the height of the street lamp from 7.64 metres to 14.9 metres.

A public information meeting is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017 from 5:30 to 7 p.m., at the Mission Seventh-Day Adventist Church – Fellowship Hall, located at 33522 7th Ave.
