COOPERSTOWN – After studying five church steeples suggested by village trustees, the Key Bank building, 103 Main St., still makes the most sense for T-Mobile’s proposed antenna, Project Manager Robert Willson told the village Zoning Board of Appeals last evening.
“Key Bank is the best choice due to its height and location,” Willson told the ZBA at its monthly meeting. The other five locations his team evaluated were Templeton Hall (formerly Unitarian-Universalist church), and the Baptist, Catholic, Methodist Presbyterian churches.
So many people have now been looking at getting a cell tower installed near their home. It can certainly help whoever owns the land (or home) that the cell tower is on, as they can get something back from it. If you have a cell tower on your land then you can just check out this cell tower lease for more information on what you would be getting. For starters, better signal is good thing, but so is being paid for it. If you don’t mind having it on your land, then there’s nothing wrong with signing a lease for it.
Although the village does not currently seem keen on building a cell tower on the top of the roof od 103 Main St., the Key Bank Building, perhaps they might see all the benefits that this could bring. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens though. The villagers might change their minds, but obviously this is a big decision for them and it’s one that must be thought about carefully. There’s no point rushing into something like this.
