John Quenell, a homeowner living on Hoffman Road, also voiced concerns to the commissioners, though he worried about the APA's efforts to reach out to residents.
"I remain concerned that property owners ... were not provided with advance written notice of the project," he wrote. "Such notice has, to my knowledge, customarily been given for past projects on the campus."
APA spokesman Keith McKeever said the agency was not required to contact residents on Hoffman Road because their property was not adjacent to the proposed easement.
The full agency board signed off on the proposal at its March 13 meeting. College spokesman Ken Aaron said the tower could be up and running later this year.
"The cell service would increase safety on the campus and help to fill a cell coverage gap in the area," Aaron added.
