Hilton Head Island’s proposed tree concealment just hit another delay.
Hilton Head Plantation has had a longstanding problem with cell phone coverage and data services. The solution to this problem was a 149-foot cell tower disguised as a tree. According to the Island Packet, the tree concealment was approved by the town’s planning officials on October 23rd.
The proposed tree concealment project was moving forward until a local resident appealed the planning officials’ decision. The resident recently requested a delay on his appeal. A second resident is also appealing the decision.
According to the Island Packet, “Construction was to begin this winter and be completed early next year…The town, however, cannot issue permits to begin construction until the appeals have been resolved.”
