Town planning board approves Verizon cell phone tower
PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) — Officials in suburban Rochester have approved a proposed Verizon cell phone tower.
The Pittsford Town Planning Board voted 4-1 to pass the measure during a meeting Monday night. Verizon plans to build the 80-foot tower on property owned by a church.
Some residents say the cell tower doesn’t fit in the neighborhood and is intrusive.
Verizon has said the tower is necessary.
Planning Board Chairman John Limbeck says the board “did a total review and did their due diligence concerning this application.”
