Vital statistics: ground lease is $36k per year
UPDATE Cell phone coverage for Verizon and T-Mobile is set to improve, and the Naperville Park District is in line to receive $1.5 million over the next 30 years after the Naperville City Council OK’d a new cell tower Tuesday night, according to the Daily Herald. The 130-foot-tall tower will be located on the publicly-owned Springbrook Golf Course, at 2220 W. 83rd St. and will be managed by Central States Tower III LLC.

City council members, who approved a conditional use to allow the tower to be taller than 60 feet, said the tower’s height and aesthetics aren’t ideal. But by a 7-2 vote they gave it the go-ahead to help improve a needed communication service. The park district is leasing the land to the tower company for $36,000 a year.

“We know that this technology is something that all of our residents want,” Mayor Steve Chirico told the Daily Herald.

Verizon will be the primary tower user by installing panel-shaped antennas near the top of the pole. Ray Shinkle, a consultant for Verizon, said T-Mobile already has expressed interest in locating some of its own antennas lower on the tower; AT&T and Sprint could follow, the Daily Herald reported.
