A balloon was flown at 140 feet and was photographed from public areas in Town, which can be seen in the photographic simulations of the Facility from various vantage points within one mile of the Site. These photographic simulations are available for viewing, together with a viewshed analysis, during the 60-day advance notice period, and prior to submission of the certificate of public good petition.
