Neighbor has proposed cell tower right across property boundry
I just found out that the owner of 120 vacant farm acres next to me had a Surveyor out to stake a cell tower location 100 feet from my adjoining property line. It will be literally a 2 to 3 hundred feet from my door. I am very concerned over the immediate impact this tower will have on my property value. Research I have done states a very real 15 to 30% reduced value of my homestead, currently on 8 acres. When there is 120 acres to choose from, why would Verizon want to select the worst possible location for an adjoining property owner? As we are in a rural location and I will be the only negatively impacted property owner I don't have the county or a homeowners association that would fight this. Do you have any information, precedents, advice or any input I could use as a recourse before this goes too far?
I have contacted the County, have the Ordinances for tower permits but seems there is little to protect my property rights. I have called the land owner to discuss this and all he would say is " its the site they picked". I was very cordial but he just ended up hanging up the phone. He has at least 1000 acres in this county and is well known. I on the other hand have lived here for only 10 years and have no clout anywhere.
Any response would be appreciated. Sincerely Stressed.
