Verizon Cell Tower Application on Pine Street

A special hearing of the Board of Adjustment regarding the Verizon cell tower on Pine Street will take place on Wednesday, February 10 at 7:30 p.m. at the Township Municipal building, 58 Meyersville Road.  
This potential new cell tower, road, and structure will be visible from the following streets within the community:  Pine, Maple, Floral, Dale, School, Linden, Robin Hood, and Shunpike
Moreover, if approved, this will be the fourth cell tower within 1/3 of a mile radius of Pine Street that is located in a residential zoned neighborhood. Pine Street is used by many children, students, and residents walking to Lafayette Avenue School, Chatham High School, Cougar Field, or enjoying a quiet, open space for walking dogs and playing.
This cell tower would be within 1 mile of a federal natural wildlife refuge, The Great Swamp which has guidelines for cell towers.  There needs to be a stop to the commercialization of Chatham Township.  Chatham Township is becoming a safe haven for cell companies to install their towers and facilities, and it’s happening within residential zoned communities. 
Our community is supposed to be a residential community, and not a place for companies to build and impose their will.  Kindly, attend the hearing on Feb. 10th at 7:30 p.m. so your voice can be heard.
