A proposal from Verizon to construct a cell tower at the Bethel-Danbury town line was sent to the state today.  An application has been submitted to the Connecticut Siting Council by Cellco Partnership, Verizon Wireless. 

 

The Application calls for the installation of a wireless telecommunications tower on a 14 acre lot at 15 Great Pasture Road in Danbury. The application says that a 120-foot monopole tower would be constructed in the westerly portion of this parcel.  A new 12-foot by 26-foot shelter near the base of the tower would house its radio equipment and a natural gas-fueled back-up generator. 

 

Access to the facility will be from Great Pasture Road.

 

On the day of the Siting Council public hearing on this proposal, Verizon will fly a balloon at the height of the proposed tower. 

 

Danbury and Bethel residents of can review the Application starting today at the Danbury Town Clerk and Bethel Town Clerk offices or the Connecticut Siting Council office in New Britain.
