People living or just passing by the scenic New Melle and Augusta areas in the future probably are going to see high towers that are needed for communication purposes, which translate into safety. But not all residents of western St. Charles County are happy about it.

The Augusta and New Melle areas are among the most scenic in Missouri. But growth is changing the landscape somewhat. Some people consider high towers unsightly and detrimental to the landscape. Others don’t get too excited about them. We are seeing more and more communication towers. The one near New Melle will be 300 feet in height. That’s tall! But wait. The one at Augusta may be 450 feet in height. Some views in the Augusta area already are marred by the Ameren power plant’s tall stacks at Labadie.
