Johnson City Board Rejects New Cell Tower

There will not be a new cell phone tower sprouting up on Deyo Hill Road in Johnson City just yet.  The Village Board has rejected a proposal from AT&T to renew a land-use agreement that was to lead to construction of the new tower to address service gaps.

Over 100 residents had petitioned the board to reject the plans over concerns about the impact on property values in the neighborhood among other issues.  AT&T has been paying the village over one thousand dollars per month for leasing the land.

Residents say they were not only concerned about aesthetics, but also of the proposed location of the 150 foot tall tower, as it would only be about 100 feet from a municipal water tank.
