Cook County, MN- Cook County has removed two communication towers. In 2001, Cook County adopted an ordinance to monitor the growing number of communication towers and a goal to limit the visual impacts of the large structures. That ordinance forces the use of existing towers before allowing the development of new ones. Over the past year, a radio communications analyst discovered that two of the towers had aged out of their useful life. One was located near the end of Old Ski Hill Road and the other was on top of Eagle Mountain at Lutsen. Both were taken down in September.
