The city West Des Moines, Iowa is planning on building a 75-foot radio tower this fall as part of the ongoing public safety update. Construction on this tower is expected to begin next month. The West Des Moines Planning and Zoning Commission vetoed a proposed amendment to expand the height of the tower to 180-feet. With the tower being that tall it would be able to service multiple private telecommunication companies and increase the network coverage in the surrounding area.
“The tower will be built at Public Safety Station 19, 8055 Mills Civic Parkway, to improve dispatch services with Westcom Emergency Communications,” the Des Moines Register reported.
