Exciting things are about to happen with Foster Road!

....And one of the reasons why it is so exciting is that you can have input and help determine which improvements may happen and how Foster Road will be transformed!

For many, many years the City has had plans to improve Foster Road. But with so many other projects needing funding as well, and available funds being so scarce, it has mostly remained plans on paper.
That is about to change. Due to a combination of factors, things are finally about to change for Foster Road. And “change for the better” that is!

      Cell Tower at Mt. Scott Fuel

      The following is a summary of the cell tower that is proposed at Mt. Scott Fuel, located within (your) Mt. Scott-Arleta Neighborhood....

      In September of last year (2011) a notice was issued by the City about a public hearing regarding Verizon and Mt. Scott Fuel proposing to build a new cell tower at the site of Mt. Scott Fuel at 6904 SE Foster road.

      This Mt. Scott Fuel site is a non-conforming use and non-confirming development that does not fit within the current zoning (or character) of our neighborhood. Furthermore even though the nature of the business is selling landscaping materials from the site, the actual site has no landscaping at all but instead is surrounded by an ugly chain-link fence and concrete walls all around, and on top of that the owners even requested a waiver from the mandatory landscaping requirements associated with the proposed cell tower.
