The Connecticut Siting Council is now considering a cell tower plan for Ridgefield. The application was submitted for a similar area off Ledges Road where voters rejected a proposal in 2011.
Homeland Towers and AT&T have made this proposal to improve communications among emergency responders.
A public hearing will be held in Ridgefield on a date to be determined by the Council. According to a notice posted on the town's website, the tower would be about 150 feet tall with antennas extending to about 161 feet. A balloon at the proposed height of the tower will be flown at the site to give residents an idea of what it will look like.
