AT&T Balloon Test Notice Thetford
New Cingular Wireless PCS, LLC (“AT&T”), for itself and the federal First Responder Network Authority (“FirstNet”), is evaluating the comparative visual effects of two locations for telecommunications towers in Thetford, all in order to improve wireless service in the area. These locations are intended to be compared against the current AT&T proposal for a tower at 121 Sawnee Bean Road (Parcel No. 05-01-41) (the “Original Location”), consistent with an agreement reached with the Town of Thetford Selectboard.
AT&T will conduct a balloon test on Monday September 28, 2020 between 9am and 12pm, which time period may be shortened or lengthened depending on weather conditions, in order to produce photographic simulations documenting the visibility of potential towers on two properties. The first location is off of Pero Hill Road (Parcel No. 05-01-25) at the current location of the Wavecomm communications tower (“Wavecomm Parcel”); while the second location is off of the northeasterly section of the Thetford Town Forest (Parcel No. 06-02-18) (“Town Forest Parcel”).
