A proposed cell tower in Brookfield is up for a public hearing tomorrow. People driving along Pocono Road in Brookfield may see a large balloon floating about 150 feet in the air behind the firehouse. Weather permitting, Homeland Tower, LLC and Cellco Partnership, doing business as Verizon Wireless, will be testing the site of a proposed cell tower between 8am and 6pm.
A field site visit is being made by the Connecticut Siting Council at 2pm tomorrow to get more information form engineers and consultants. A public hearing on the proposed cell tower will be held tomorrow at 7pm at Brookfield Town Hall.
The companies have applied for and the Siting Council is vetting the Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need for the construction, maintenance, and operation of a telecommunications facility.
