Balloon Test Notice for AT&T Replacement Tower at Pierson Hill, Topsham, VT
New Cingular Wireless PCS, LLC d/b/a AT&T is proposing to remove two existing towers on Pierson Hill in Topsham, VT (located off of Ben Dexter Road), and to construct a 180’ replacement communications tower and associated equipment in the compound to provide wireless service in the area. AT&T has distributed a 60-day advance notice for the project dated December 31, 2019, in accordance with 30 V.S.A. 248a.
To assess the visual effects of the Project, AT&T conducted a balloon test at the site of the proposed Replacement Tower on Friday, January 10, 2020 from 9am to 1pm. AT&T flew a balloon at 184’ AGL, which was photographed from VT Route 25 and public areas in Topsham. The photographs were then used to generate photographic simulations of the Facility from various vantage points within one-and-a-half miles of the Site. These photographic simulations can be accessed below:
