Static over cell towers at Hillsborough schools could bring change

TAMPA — The public may yet get a chance to weigh in before cell phone towers sprout up on school campuses.

Hillsborough County commissioners will reconsider a land use change they approved in the fall that allows cell phone towers to be placed on school grounds with few restrictions and little public input.

With towers now going up, parents are voicing outrage over the change and concerns about the health of their children and the look of their neighborhoods.

Several residents showed up to voice just those concerns to commissioners during their meeting Wednesday.

Chairman Ken Hagan told them he has asked the county administration to look for ways to revise the ordinance so that the public will get a stronger voice.
