Lakeview Cell Tower Update

The Board has confirmed that the modified design is an expansion under the original 2005 lease agreement, with the cell tower lessee, Crown Castle. Two additional providers will be added within the current leased area, which will include a larger service building and a mono-pine tower that will be located to the West of the building space, to replace the current flag pole tower. In consideration for the change in design and re-location of the tower, Crown Castle will be installing additional trees and shrubs surrounding the building.

Arapahoe County zoning, planning and official notices will be a part of this approval process, outside the purview of the district and its board.

Please note, the District was obligated to adhere to the terms of the current lease agreement, which included this lease expansion option. Verizon Wireless is planning to occupy one of the new tower locations.

Please contact the County Planning Department to get updates on the progress of the plan and approval.
