COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. – The Collier County Planning Commission will look at a proposal Thursday that would allow a cell tower to be put up in Golden Gate Estates.

The proposal would place the cell tower on a parcel of land off Green Boulevard near Collier Boulevard. Some nearby neighbors hope the tower helps them stay connected to people.

“The service here is so bad,” said Jossie Perez who lives near the proposed tower location.

The tower would span 147 feet tall, and it would be covered to look like a tree to blend in with the surroundings.

“It’s frustrating because you’ll be on the phone and it just all of the sudden goes out,” John Johnson said.

The proposed tower is in response to the high demand for cell service in the area. The carriers are expected to be T-Mobile and Verizon.

A T-Mobile report said there are users that can’t even place a call to 911 in the area.

“I can’t imagine being on an emergency call and the phone drops. It’s not going to be good,” Johnson said.

If the planning commission recommends the project Thursday, it will move to the Board of County Commissioners.
