Communication Tower – 15 Einig Avenue review
Mr. Ford gave an overview of this item.
Some discussion took place amongst the Historic Preservation Board members and staff regarding the cell tower and how it can blend in the best way possible. Some of the suggestions were regarding the paint color used, such as sky blue, and suggesting that any attachments for the cell tower be mounted so that the antennas are close to the pole.
Member Shifalo said she is against approving the cell tower as it will not blend in nicely.
Vice Chairman Petyk made a motion recommending approval of the cell tower with conditions to resolve any visual effects the tower may pose to historic resources in the City with the tower being sky blue in color and the antennas being mounted close up to the tower to the State Historic Preservation Officer. Member Jonas seconded.
