Land Developers -Incorporate towers into PUDs
We have been approached by land developers who are looking to increase their revenue by incorporating stealth design towers/ structures into their planned developments. Unfortunately, some of them are attempting to do this after zoning approval of the PUD and are finding difficulty doing so.
By incorporating the design into the PUD before submittal to planning, often times the developer can get zoning approval for a proposed tower while incurring a slight increased cost of A&E. With well placed towers capable of generating $100,000 in annual cash flow, it certainly pays to evaluate the potential before submitting for planning especially when you consider the provision of solid wireless services to business and residential owners who are abandoning their land lines more than ever.
