    I read somewhere that Glen Ellyn was selected to host the very first experimental space elevator. Maybe what you see here is the beginning of that project?

    Cell tower. There is a huge dead spot for ATT around there all the way down to Ackerman.

    OK, but who approved the design and placement? Geez..that is the ugliest thing I have seen, and I look in the mirror in the morning.

    That is how they were originally taken, you can't fix them on here. I'm guessing your computer automatically corrects that for viewing. If you fix them before uploading, they will be right. Sorry!

    It appears to be adjacent to Village Garage and set back about 25'.
    Private property or not, they would have needed a variance for that wouldn't they?

    Based on the other boxes in front of it, looks like the pole might be in a utility easement. Not sure if that means "anything goes".

    Starting on page 215, you can see the new Village of Glen Ellyn Ordinance for cellular antennas. While the changes apply to small cell sites, it does have everything you'd ever want to know about what can and cannot be done.

    Edit: I am assuming this passed, but the minutes are not available yet.

    Thanks for the info.....nice addition to our "Gateway to the Village". Fits right in with the massive gas station.
    Don't those cell tower thingys give off some kind of radiation that is harmful to our kids at Forest Glen? I smell another lawsuit!
