I live in Ridgecrest, CA. I went to the city bulding department to obtain a permit to install a 40 ft tower.  There I started a permit but require a dievation from the planning depaqrtment, due tocity  restrictions on height to 36 feet.  I must also obtain $400. dollars worth of engineering from Universal Manfacturing, even though I have the Universal towers original manual showing installation requirements including the footing (base).  I have no idea how much tougher the city can make putting up a tower. I gave them a plot map showing the towers proposed location and copies of the mfg. manuals. Guess we will see.

How about putting up a 36' tower? Would that simplify the process?

If an engineering review is all you run into, you've got nothing to complain about.

I don’t think it is unreasonable for the city to require an engineering report for the specific location where you want to erect a tower. The means of anchoring a tower can vary greatly depending on the soil conditions where the tower is to be placed. Locating it on loose, sandy soil requires more substantial anchoring than if it is located on firm ground with bedrock close to the surface.
