I am a member of the Everywhere Society and Everywhere has provided me with compensation for this post. However, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
I have lived in the southwest Florida area for over three years now. It’s crazy to think how many different cities and beaches I’ve explored in this part of the state, but it’s clear where my favorite one is. Sanibel Island is a picturesque island that has quirky Florida flair and beautiful seashells that wash ashore. I’ve gone on vacation to Sanibel, worked on Sanibel for a brief time, and try to spend as much time there as possible now that I live nearby!
One thing that I noticed years ago was that my cell phone service on the island wasn’t that great. Then, all of a sudden, my cell phone started working without fail! Guess what changed? A cell phone tower! You might be thinking…just how exactly did Sanibel Island put a cell phone tower on such a beautiful landscape? Well, have you ever seen a tree standing above all the surrounding ones? Or, a super tall flag pole? These structures are meant to hide cell service services. Neighborhoods wants the cell phone service but don’t love the look of a traditional cell phone tower.
This flag pole is an example of a steal concealment. We need the cell phone service, but don’t need to know that they are there. Stealth Concealments are masters of taking a cell phone tower and creating a concealment to disguise it. From church steeples to smoke stacks, there are so many ways a community can bring cell phone service without compromising the look of your city.
Cell phone service is something that cannot be ignored since we are all connected! Did you know:
- 7 out of 10 homeowners are concerned with the appearance of the cell towers and there are roughly 21 cell sites to every McDonalds in America!
- 91% of people say cell service is as important as deodorant and more important than TV and coffee!
- From 2003 to 2013, cell site locations have nearly increased by 50%,
- If cell towers are in your neighborhood/coming to a neighborhood near you, you have the choice to conceal it.
- Community members can go to: http://www.stealthtowerpower.com to learn more about Stealth Concealments and what they offer the community.
The process to cover cell sites varies. Sometimes the cell service provider’s pay for the concealment, but in some cases private owners will foot the bill. The best news, community members should never have to pay for a concealment! If you are looking at a cell tower out of your window right now, you can ask for it to be concealed by contacting your local community leaders. If you know a cell tower is coming to your community, you can ask for zoning regulations to be added via the city’s zoning laws. There many options, but sharing your opinion is where this all starts!
Stealth’s concealments artists work to create personalized concealments that blend cell towers into the community or turn them into pieces of art.
If you want to make sure that your cell towers fit in with your community, be sure to visit stealthconcealment.com to download the Concealment Handbook! Besides, I’m sure we all want a cell tower to look as beautiful as this one!
Do you have visible cell phone towers in your neighborhood? Are you active in your community?
