On July 6, 2016, the Village of Olympia Fields’ Board of Trustees voted to deny an application by Central States Tower for a monopole at 20401 Western Avenue.
Central States Tower subsequently filed a lawsuit challenging the denial in the Northern District of Illinois.
After a meeting between Village Officials and representatives of Central States Tower, the Village held another public hearing at which the President and Board of Trustees voted to approve the Special Use Permit and enter into a Consent Judgement.
On 27 December, the Village issued a building permit to Central States Tower for construction of a 105′ Monopine Structure.
Central States Tower plans to begin construction on the communications site early in the new year.
