Board of adjustment nixes Belton Stage tower request

Print Article

The Flathead County Board of Adjustment on Tuesday rejected Don and Paul Herbertís request for a conditional-use permit to erect a cellular communication tower at 1291 Belton Stage Road in the Middle Canyon Zoning District.

The Herberts also had asked for a zoning variance to allow a taller tower. Based on the distance from U.S. 2, the Herberts could be permitted to have a 103-foot tower with a conditional-use permit, but they asked for a 150-foot tower.

Neighbors in the Belton Stage Road area voiced their opposition during the public hearing, opposing the intrusion of such a tall tower.
