I read your Facebook status update regarding an Op-Ed on the proposed cell tower and would like to make an essential clarification: St. Luke’s is not and was never in negotiations with the Town of New Canaan or any cell tower provider to place a tower on our campus.
It is accurate that in April 2017 the town requested and was granted a meeting. They presented facts about the need for cell coverage and cited safety concerns. St. Luke’s expressed strong reservations about use of our campus and the conversation ended. There were no “talks underway.”
As coverage of this story will likely continue for some time, I’d like to request complete accuracy and clarity around this issue.
I thought it critical to bring this to your attention to avoid further unintentional misrepresentation of the facts.
