North Atlantic Towers floated 2 balloons this morning. They’re part of preparations for building a cell tower in the back yard of a Greens Farms Road home.
Here’s the view from the I-95 overpass on Hillspoint Road. The view looks north.
A couple dozen anti-tower protesters turned up. So — in an observational capacity — did First Selectman Jim Marpe, town attorney Ira Bloom, and state representatives Jonathan Steinberg, Gail Lavielle and Tony Hwang.
State regulations appear to allow the erection of a cell tower on private property.
But Westport seldom lets an issue like this happen quietly.
