Plan Would Blend Tower With Key Bank Architecture

‘It Will Look Like It’s Always Been There’

Plan Would Blend Tower

With Key Bank Architecture

T-Mobile’s lawyer Matthew Kerwin, a partner with Barclay Damon, this evenings shows the Cooperstown Village Board the material the proposed cell tower on top of Key Bank would utilize to make it blend in with the building’s architecture. “It would look like it’s been there the whole time,” he said. Though a public hearing was held this evening, no one spoke up.  The trustees declined to vote on approving the tower, saying they were waiting for SEQR approval from the village’s H-PARB and ZBA boards.

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.
