AT&T 248a Advance Notice: Granville
New Cingular Wireless PCS, LLC d/b/a AT&T (“AT&T”) proposes to construct and install a new communications support structure and wireless communications facility (as described below, the “Facility” or “Project”) on property located at North Hollow Road, Granville, Vermont (the “Property” or “Site”), on land owned by Michael and Diane Eramo. Downs Rachlin Martin PLLC (“DRM”) represents AT&T in connection with the Project. Pursuant to 30 V.S.A. § 248a, this letter is intended to provide 60 days advance notice that AT&T intends to submit to the Vermont Public Utility Commission (“Commission”) a petition for approval to construct the Facility at the Site.
To assess the visual effects of the Project, AT&T conducted a balloon test at the site of the proposed facility on Saturday, November 28, 2020 from 9:00am–1:00pm. The balloon was a height of 180’ feet and was photographed from public areas in Town. The photographs were then used to generate photographic simulations of the Facility from various vantage points within two miles of the Site. Those simulations can be downloaded here:
Additional materials concerning the Project have been added to the Advance Notice link above, and include:

A public information session was held on Thursday, December 17, 2020 at 6pm via Zoom. A copy of the presentation can be found here.
A second balloon test and RF drive test took place on Tuesday, January 12, 2020 between roughly 9am and 1pm, using a revised tower location approximately 200’ to the southeast of the original tower location on the property. Revised site plan drawings and a sketch showing the new location, as well as the results of the drive test and the supplemental photo simulations, can be found at the link below:
