AT&T Takes A Second Look At Elementary School For Cell Tower SiteComments Off on AT&T Takes A Second Look At Elementary School For Cell Tower Site
AT&T has requested to discuss their cell tower application with the Massachusetts’s Scituate Board of Selectmen at their next meeting about being able to construct their cell tower on the Wampatuck Elementary School property.
Ruth Thompson of the Wicked Local Scituate reported that, “During a continuing variance hearing before the Scituate Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) on August 13, attorney Edward Pare, Jr. of the Boston law firm Brown Rudnick, said he has sent a letter to the selectmen on behalf of AT&T asking the board to reconsider a previous decision the board made not to permit a cell tower at the school site, located at 226 Tilden Road.”
AT&T has looked at 29 different sites but believes the Tilden Road neighborhood will be the best place for their tower in order to reduce gaps in their cell phone coverage. Pare understood why the board may have rejected the proposal in the first place because of the location on the school’s property. However, he believes there is an alternate location on the school’s property that will be more acceptable.
AT&T has been trying to construct a cell tower in the vicinity of Tilden Road since 2009.
