Even squirrels know better

The worst-looking cell tower I have ever seen. I’m a huge supporter of economic development in our area, specifically the Gateway Bridge and what that will do for the south side of the tracks.

However, after being in the wireless communications industry for most of my career, the new “pine tree with large squirrel nest” design for the cell tower adjacent to the bridge is really awful. I’m not sure who the carrier is but the city needs to revisit this with another option - any option. No one, even the squirrels, will think that thing is a pine tree. How about another milk bottle?
