Bob Holladay owns six stations in the Florida Keys. He’s appealed to the County Planning Commission after that board denial of his plan for a 199-foot radio tower on Upper Sugarloaf Key. Holladay recently moved the stations’ studios and requested approval to build the tower there.
According to keysnews.com county code allows the tower if certain requirements are met and if the county planning staff did not object to it. However, a large number of residents did object and the commission agreed. Holladay filed an appeal stating, “The Planning Commission failed to base its ruling on competent substantial evidence. The Planning Commission departed from the essential requirements of the law resulting in a miscarriage of justice.”
