Cerrillos Cell Tower Documents

AT&T is proposing to place an 80 foot tall "monopine" or "water tank" cell tower on the ridge above the Village of Cerrillos, adjacent to Cerrillos Hills State Park.  Las Candelas de Los Cerrillos, The Cerrillos Hills Park Coalition, and The San Marcos Association are working to oppose placing such a culturally jarring feature at that location, a viewpoint taken by most of the residents of the Village and the surrounding area.  Neither we, nor they, are opposed to increasing cell phone coverage, but we feel strongly that this is an inappropriate location.

The NM State Historic Preservation supports the cultural properties tax credit. Worthwhile to anyone purchasing a property and bring the building(s) back to life. The video features several New Mexico properties undergoing restoration including one in Cerrillos.

The Las Candelas CO Committee works with Santa Fe County to inform residents on development applications before the County. The 2015 Sustainable Land Development Code and 2015 Zoning Map have been adopted.

While taking into consideration that many of us use cell phones, and are not opposed in general to a need for communications infrastructure, the Board of Las Candelas community association will give the following input through Trileaf for the State historic Preservation Office (SHPO):  Las Candelas is strongly opposed to the prominent location of a communications tower in view of the Turquoise Trail National Scenic Byway at Cerrillos, the entrance to the historic Village of Cerrillos, and the Cerrillos Hills State Park. The site is contained within a view-shed significant in American history, and our historic Los Cerrillos Mining District (listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places, #273, registered 1973).

Diamond Communications conducted a virtual community meeting via Amazon chime at 6:00 pm. Approx. 50 area residents signed in. Following the public meeting Diamond Communications will begin their application with the County. 


Las Candelas Community Organization requests postponement of required public meetings on the Trileaf proposal until Covid-19 safety measures are lifted by the Governor.
