Cell phone tower at Corpus Christi Catholic Church
Designs for a controversial 65-foot cell phone tower at Corpus Christi Catholic Church appear similar to an existing bell tower attached to the church Ari Cohn/AFN

A Phoenix zoning adjustment hearing on a controversial cell phone tower proposed in central Ahwatukee Foothills has been continued to Feb. 3.

Because of neighborhood opposition, AT&T has offered to scale down a 65-foot-tall cell phone tower proposed at Corpus Christi Catholic Church, at 36th Street north of Knox Road, by making it look like a 45-foot saguaro cactus. Neighbors in the upscale area around the site have said the original design would have blotted out a large portion of their South Mountain views, affecting local property values.
