Latest News & Updates

On March 3, Atlas Tower asked the County for a temporary hold while they compile information to address the numerous deficiencies in their application. Keep an eye on this page for updates.

There will be little time to respond once Atlas Tower proceeds. The FCC’s “shot clock” requires Boulder County to act very quickly or the tower will be automatically approved under federal regs!

We already know these things won’t change: the increased fire risk to the foothills communities and the negative visual impacts across Boulder from a fake pine tree towering 50’ above the ridgeline.

What is that?

Application Put on Hold

Atlas Tower requested that Boulder County place its cell tower application on hold to enable it to address the numerous deficiencies and misrepresentations uncovered in its application. This is an important first victory for the community but the struggle is far from over. The County estimates that only 106 days will remain on the FCC’s “shot clock” once the hold is lifted. This means that the County will have to reach a decision within that time frame or risk automatic approval of the cell tower by the FCC.  Please don’t wait for the hold to be lifted.
