Cell Phone Tower Planned for Grace Drive

A pre-submission community meeting will be held on February 16 at the River Hill Meeting Room (6330 Trotter Road, adjacent to the River Hill outdoor pool) to explain plans for the installation of a cell phone tower. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. The public is invited to attend.

Calvert Crossland, LLC is working with Verizon Wireless on plans to construct a 199’ high monopole cell phone tower adjacent to the existing Grace water tower. Currently, various carriers have antennas on the water tower; however, Verizon Wireless is not among them. Therefore, Calvert Crossland, LLC is proposing this project to increase coverage and capacity for Verizon Wireless. Calvert Crossland will lease the land from Grace and expects the existing wireless carriers’ antennas will move to the new tower. All carriers will lease access from Calvert Crossland. Ultimately, the aging water tower will be removed.

A nearby cell phone tower is also in the early development stages. SCE Site Development, a subsidiary of S &N Communications, is working in conjunction with Verizon Wireless to install a 100’ high cell tower in the Village of Hickory Ridge. This tower is planned for installation near the intersection of Owen Brown Road and Cedar Lane. For information on this project visit www.hickoryridgevillage.org.
