One special exception OK’d, second deferred

Duke Energy will be allowed to put up a five-story office building within the protected area of Oconee Nuclear Station, but a separate request to allow a cell phone tower at Long Creek was deferred until next month. Several Long Creek property owners and others turned out to oppose a cell tower they say would be constructed not far from the protected Wild and Scenic Chattooga River. However, zoning administrator Josh Stephens told the Oconee Board of Zoning Appeals that the applicant company contacted him Wednesday and requested a delay. According to Stephens, the company may have gotten whiff of mounting opposition to its application and may set out to make changes. A couple of opposing property owners spoke to 96.3/WGOG NEWS and their comments on why this cell tower would be bad for their community can be heard today on 96.3/WGOG NEWS.
