For over a decade, Downs Rachlin Martin PLLC has been assisting wireless carriers, tower developers and site acquisition agents to obtain agreements, consents and regulatory approvals for wireless telecommunications sites in Vermont and New Hampshire, as well as border areas of upstate New York and northern Massachusetts. The markers on the map below represent the municipalities and districts where DRM has obtained regulatory approvals for our clients on projects ranging from new tower site builds to tower reconstruction projects to co-location projects on a wide assortment of structures, including existing towers, agricultural buildings and silos, water tanks, ski jumps, religious edifices and rooftops.
Our attorneys and legislative affairs team played an integral role in developing Vermont’s expedited siting procedure set forth in 30 V.S.A. 248a, and our telecom group is also well versed in obtaining the numerous municipal approvals required for siting projects in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and New York. Additionally, supplemental approvals for siting projects such as stormwater permits, NEPA due diligence, stream alteration permits, division of fire safety approvals, wetland permits, tramway authority consents, highway access permits and a myriad of other regulatory requirements are within the firm’s realm of experience. Our title searching resources are tuned to identify key issues for wireless development, such as road and utility access and conservation restrictions.
Whether your proposed wireless communications facility is situated in a developed residential district or a remote mountaintop area of northern New England, DRM has the industry experience, localized knowledge and in-house resources to facilitate your project from initial design through post-construction compliance.
The markers shown above do not represent the actual physical locations of wireless communications facility sites, and the map is not intended as a propagation map depicting wireless coverage in a particular area of northern New England. These markers identify municipalities, and in some cases DRM has worked on multiple siting projects in a given municipality.
