Dear Editor,

It is disappointing that the Board of Selectmen will be discussing a new, taller, cell tower behind West School at their 8:30 a.m. meeting on Tuesday (3/21). The proposal this past fall/winter was for a 145 foot tower behind West School.  This new proposal is for a 185 foot tall tower behind West School, near Llewellyn Drive. The First Selectman’s proposed towers are well above the town’s 110 foot limit outlined in several publicly available documents on the town’s website:

 “Cell Service FAQs” —“No cell site developed on any of these town properties will be taller than 110 feet”.
