Below is archival information about the 2015 campaign opposing the Crossfire Tower in South Eugene

Map of the Amazon Creek corridor connecting the Amazon Headwaters and Amazon Park, and the location of the proposed cell tower.


AT&T’s schematic drawing of the proposed cell tower with its equipment. The church roof peak height is 30′ and the tower would be 75′. The tower would be designed to host a second array of equipment (“co-location”) by second provider.

The top of the AT&T monopine at the Glenwood transfer station. The proposed design for Amazon Creek would be 6 antennas on the top tier and a second tier under it for another set of antennas available for co-location of another company.


AT&T’s mock-up photo below uses the image of a normal tree, not a monopine with antennas and other microwave equipment as seen above and in their schematic drawing. Note the tower would be two and a half times as high as the top of the church building.

Approaching the Amazon Creek viewshed from Fox Hollow Road. The tower would be just to the right of the corner of the building, extending two and a half times the height of the building (above the frame of the photo). It would block the views of Kincaid Park, Parker Elementary School, and the hillside in the distance.


The above in portrait mode. At two and a half times the height of the building the tower would block the treeline and sky above the hills in the distance.


View from ground zero over the creek and into Kincaid Park, with Parkside Elementary School in the background. The tower would be looking down from 75 feet above, with full view of this area.


View from the east side of the creek, directly in front of Kincaid Park. The tower would appear between the corner of the building and the sign. It would extend two and a half times the height of the building, far above the treeline in the background and the frame of the photo.


View of the site from the Adidas/Rexius Trail across the creek. The tower would be in front and to the left of the corner of the building. At two and a half times the building height it would dominate this view and extend well above the treeline in the background.

The open space of Kincaid Park across the creek from the proposed site. Parker Elementary School is just past the left edge of the photo.


Map showing the distance from the proposed tower site to the Amazon Greenway across the street: 128 feet; and to the beginning of Kincaid Park across the creek: 355 feet. Note the family homes bordering on the property and directly across the creek, and the nearby apartment complexes.


Map showing proximity of the proposed site to Amazon Creek, the Adidas/Rexius Trail System, Kincaid Park and Parker Elementary School (to be re-occupied fall 2015). The circle is the 500 meter radius commonly used in studies to compare radiation exposure for impact on humans and wildlife. Note: As homes increase in elevation up the hillsides on either side of the creek they would come into a direct horizontal line of exposure to the emissions from the tower — into bedrooms, children’s rooms, etc.


New AT&T plan to plant trees to try and shield the view of the tower, submitted at the hearing May 27:
