More on the Arivaca Tower

The construction of a 98 foot tower on the edge of Arivaca is extremely unpopular among most residents of the town. Unfortunately, I could not attend the 30 April 2007 meeting at the Community Center regarding the tower. An article about the meeting, however, can be found here. It nicely summarizes some of the main concerns the people of Arivaca have about the tower. For more information on the tower from a local perspective see this article.

Thank you for the links to local response on this issue. This was the first I'd read about the airhorn, for example. I feel very sorry for the people of Aravaca and the disruption and invasion of privacy this network will bring. You are correct to question how this pilot exercise can possible be properly assessed for effectiveness. I'll keep checking in here for more developments.

Sharon, thanks for stopping by and thanks for your interest in the well being of the people of Arivaca. I will try and keep this blog up to date on the tower story. I could probably do a better job if I had not missed all the meetings. But, I live in a remote area even by Arivaca standards and don't drive.
