COLUMBIA — AT&T may build a cell tower at the corner of West Worley Street and Pershing Road next to Fire Station No. 2.

The proposed 100-foot tower would be at the southwest corner of the fire station, according to a letter from AT&T to residents of the city of Columbia. The equipment shelter would be surrounded by a wooden fence that would match the neighbor's fence, the letter stated.

City staff indicated the agreement would not be up for Columbia City Council consideration without first gauging neighborhood reaction to the proposal, according to a weekly memo from the Interim City Manager to the City Council.

AT&T representatives and city staff will present the proposal at a public meeting at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at 319 West Blvd. N. in the West Boulevard Elementary cafeteria. A question and answer session will follow.

If approved, the tower would be completed later this year and AT&T would pay the city to rent the property.
