Three public meetings are scheduled this week for Nassau County residents to learn more about a proposed cellphone tower master plan, according to the county manager’s office.

 

The public outreach sessions will be spread across the county to give residents the opportunity to learn more about the plan and offer feedback.

The first meeting is at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the James S. Page Governmental Complex at 96135 Nassau Place in Yulee. At 6 p.m. Wednesday another meeting will be at the American Beach Community Center at 1600 Julia St. in Fernandina Beach. The last is set for 6 p.m. Thursday at the Callahan Fairgrounds multipurpose Facility at 543350 U.S. 1 in Callahan.

The county’s proposed telecommunications master plan identifies and assesses existing wireless communication facilities and determines gaps in existing coverage. It also provides recommendations for design and locations for future cellphone towers and facilities, aimed at developing a more efficient wireless telecommunications network that will meet the future needs of Nassau County. The plan would also attempt to minimize visual impacts of the telecommunications towers and equipment, maintain community aesthetics and develop policies for future wireless infrastructure, according to county officials.

Nassau County and CityScape Consultants staff will be at each meeting.
