Commuters between Camp Verde and Cottonwood as well as local RV park visitors may see improved wireless service in their future as the Town of Camp Verde Council considers Planning and Zoning Commission's unanimous recommendation of a new cell tower during its March 23 meeting.

Planning and Zoning approved the cell tower on Feb. 24 with the stipulation that "all tower structures and all equipment attached be a painted a non-reflective gray color."

Reg Destree of Destree Development is representing applicant SBA, which proposed the tower in 2011 for Verizon Wireless.
