A plan by SALEM to build a new five-tower array for Talk KRLA-A/LOS ANGELES has some residents of COVINA, CA up in arms. The PASADENA STAR-NEWS reports that LOS ANGELES COUNTY has received almost 200 letters opposing the project, which would install five 285-foot towers on a 73 acre plot in an unincorporated part of the county.
The opposition, which has voiced concern that the towers will cause the removal of several trees, may lower property values, and cause health risks, launched five weather balloons to the 285-foot level to demonstrate what the towers would look like. The project is in the environmental impact report stage, which should be completed in 6-12 months.
