A public hearing will be held next month in Redding about a proposed cell tower at the Redding Ridge Fire House. The Redding Planning Commission has met to discuss the proposed cell tower, which would be about 150 feet tall. AT&T would be the service provider of the proposed facility along Black Rock Turnpike.
The Connecticut Siting Council applications says there are 10 existing communications facilities within four miles, but none can provide reliable service to the area. In 2007 a higher pole was going to be installed but due to the recession the carrier backed out.
The Siting Council wrote a letter to Redding’s First Selectman at the end of May saying that comments from the town about the tower are due by the 18th.
The public hearing scheduled on last night's agenda is for July 29th at 3pm.
