Cell tower proposal considered tonight by Danbury committee

Richter Park in Danbury is once again looking to build a cell tower on the 180 acre property.  The difference from the 2011 proposal is that now, the granddaughter of the woman who donated the land to the City in 1968 has granted a partial waiver on the deed restrictions imposed on the City to allow for construction of a cell tower. 

 

The Planning Commission held a meeting last night about the plan and an ad hoc committee of the City Council will meet tonight about it. 

 

The Richter Park Authority feels that revenue from a cell tower would allow them to move forward on projects for the Park laid out in the 2008 Master Plan.  The deed restricted use of the property to recreational purposes only.  The Master Plan calls for improving hiking trails and tennis facilities and to reconfigure the golf course to make room for a driving range.
