Tamarindo Talk

March 24, 2011

Neighbors are up in arms about a proposed cellular tower going up in a local residential neighborhood. Mike Gottlieb found a poster tacked up on an electric power pole in front of Casa La Carolina, between Villa Verde II and Los Sueños I condominiums, which stated that Claro Telefonía Móvil intends to erect a 60-meter-high communications tower at that site. Mike called the number on the poster and learned that the base of the tower will be about 20 by 20 meters. Word about the tower has spread throughout the neighborhood, stirring a groundswell of unhappiness, especially as residents believe there is an alternative location on a hill. They are urging anyone concerned about the tower to get in touch with Stanley Sarmiento at Claro (800-503-0008, sarmiento.william@claro.com.sv) to voice their opinions.
