Tower Proposal Heads To City Council For Decision

The Lynchburg Planning Commission on Wednesday had a lengthy debate regarding a proposed AT&T tower on Langhorne Road. AT&T requested a permit to install a 145-foot telecommunications tower, but during a public comments period at yesterday’s meeting, neighbors spoke against it. According to AT&T, the tower would be disguised to resemble a pine tree and would be put up in a large wooded area set back from its nearest neighbor. The planning commission voted against the tower and the recommendation now will be forwarded on to City Council, which will have the final say in the matter. In September, the city granted permission for the same style of tower to be built behind Perrymont Elementary School. Construction on that AT&T project has not started yet.
