Cell tower proposed in Blair

BLAIR – The Cavalry, in the form of a cell tower, may be on its way to Blair.

While cell towers are often opposed by residents, some are welcoming one to western Fairfield County where cell service is patchy to non-existent.

According to a public notice published this week in The Voice, Diamond Towers V, LLC proposes to construct a 310-foot guyed telecommunications tower off Dave Jenkins Road in Blair.

The tower will include dual, medium intensity lighting.

Diamond Towers invites public comment from interested parties on the impact the proposed tower may have. Comments may be sent to Environmental Corporation of America, ATTN: Dina Bazzili, 1375 Union Hill Industrial Court, Suite A, Alpharetta, GA 30004. Bazzilli can also be reached at (770)667-2040, ext. 111. Comment must be received within 30 days of the posting of the public notice.
