UPDATE: Cell Antenna On The Green
The Selectboard took no action on the request to mount a small cell antenna on the Norwich Green, as representatives from Verizon Wireless could not make it to the meeting on November 8. No votes were taken but the sense of the Selectboard, based on the catv8 video, appeared to be that the easement was far too broad that the location was not ideal, being on the Green. The telecom has indicated two other locations might be workable but those were not discussed. See UPDATE: Why This Pole?
Five residents spoke against the installation; no public comment was in favor. During the meeting, it was also indicated that Verizon Wireless wanted the consent of the Norwich School Board because the Marion Cross School owns the Green.
