Just to keep all informed: I met this morning for about 30 minutes with folks from the Mass Department of Transportation’s real estate division and their legislative liaison. As in my meetings with Verizon, I made clear to them that the currently proposed Exit 59 location is a dead proposal in my mind. They explained […]
My recommendation was that Verizon approach the Board of Selectmen and have a public discussion of all their Belmont area service improvement needs. Put the service drawing up on the screen and have a discussion starting at square zero as to possible locations.
The list of cell tower locations in Belmont appears below on this list prepared by the Department of Community Development in May 2009.
The lease of the site for the cell tower at Exit 59 has been terminated, effectively ending the possibility of a cell tower at that site in the near future.
Regarding Verizon’s proposal to site a tall cell tower in Belmont on Rte. 2 (http://www.wickedlocal.com/belmont/features/x1520846849/Residents-object-to-Verizon-cell-tower-proposal), are there feasible solutions that would improve our cell coverage but which would use less visible antennae? What are the trade-offs?
