Monopole approved near JJC

A 135-foot cellphone monopole has been approved for a site near the Joliet Junior College main campus.

The monopole would be built on land owned by JJC just north of Joliet Junior College Road, the ring road that encircles the campus on Houbolt Road, according to a Joliet city staff memo.

The Joliet City Council this month approved a special use permit for the monopole sought by Central States Tower and Verizon Wireless. The same location had been approved for a 160-foot monopole in 2013, but it was not built.
