Reports today showing Rogers is proposing to build a cell tower in Sage creek as part of the MTS/Rogers Partnered network. Tower is said to go up in the Manitoba Hydro line corridor and to be a 25 meter high monopole. Fantastic news! This area of the city has been a weak spot for some time now and great timing as that area is being developed even more. Hope the River Heights gets built as well!

Its too bad the proposed coverage maps are not online. I wonder if it will help the Island Lakes / Royalwood area as well as parts of those developments are shown as reduced coverage on the MTS signal map.

This is the 2nd new Rogers site I am aware of being proposed in Winnipeg for 2016. the other one is to the east of IKEA in the area of the rail lines.

It should take some traffic off other towers near by and help with the Island Lakes/Royalwood issues. They have one planned for Richmond West a well just South of Bision drive.

Betting this receives strong and vocal opposition from "concerned" area residents.

Apparently because its going in the hydro right of way off of Warde the community is not opposed to it. 

From what the CBC reported Rogers worked with Qualico Developments and the Sage Creek residents association to find an acceptable spot to all parties.
