Tamarindo Talk

According to Toni Vandewalle, one of the residents who live on the hill where the new Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE) cellular tower has been built (TT, March 19), the recent meeting with ICE engineers was as positive as they could have hoped. “ICE officials and engineers told us they were willing to change the location as long as the coverage stayed good,” she reports.

The group of homeowners suggested putting antennas on top of existing buildings, and ICE said it would investigate that possibility. The homeowners went around to a couple of buildings with the ICE engineers, who took GPS coordinates to study for possible positioning. Meanwhile, the original tower will be finished until relocation studies can be completed.
