Zoning change requested for cell phone tower by Parmer

At the end of January 2019 neighbors with property adjoining the United Christian Church  that at 3500 W Parmer received a mailed notice the UCC had requested a zoning change to allow a Verizon cell phone tower — a 100 ft tall monopole  and supporting equipment within 840 square feet — since the current zoning doesn’t allow sufficient height.

The Permit/Case number is 2019-009809ZC; the case details are available at the City’s zoning public search site (the home page for the public search is https://abc.austintexas.gov/web/permit/public-search-other?reset=true). The  zoning case document (PDF) shows that the planned site is on the church property close to Parmer.

A number of nearby neighbors expressed concerns on both our Facebook group and on NextDoor. Our Zoning Chair emailed the church to asked the church for a meeting but never heard back from them. He also discussed the project with some of the concerned neighbors, but no formal action has been taken regarding the zoning change.

A public Zoning & Platting meeting will be scheduled; as of this writing (3/16/19) the date has not been set.
