MDI: 100-foot Tower is Approved

TREMONT — The planning board here voted 5-0 Tuesday to approve, with conditions, an application for a communications facility with a 100-foot cell phone tower on the Kellytown Road.

New Cingular Wireless PCS, LLC, a subsidiary of AT&T Mobilty, submitted the application, which was found complete by the planning board on June 2. The site would include the tower, a 12-foot-by-20-foot equipment building and diesel back-up generator, which is to be built on a 100-foot-by-100-foot lot leased from Peter and Jennifer Gott.

A number of residents have come forward to express concerns about the project after learning of New Cingular’s plans.
