Coincidentally, that is the same height as a fracking drill tower. They even said that it would not have guide wires. That led me to believe that it was going to be planted quite deep into the ground. My house would have been within 500 feet of the tower.
You lose some and you win some.
Good news. I, too, think that was a horrid idea from the start. Glad it got struck down.
