Cell Tower Rises Over Pere Marquette Park

Workers from R & S Tower Services in St. Louis erected a cell tower in Pere Marquette Park last week. The city had agreed to a lease deal with AT&T for the cell tower to be placed in the park. AT&T will pay $950 per month to lease the property in addition to providing $3,500 that can be used for landscaping around the tower. While previous reporting quoted a city official as saying many people did not even know the property in question was part of the park, the tower — one of three in the vicinity — is across Jaycee Drive from the park pavilion.
