AT&T Petition for Certificate of Public Good Mendon, VT

AT&T: Mendon, VT

New Cingular Wireless PCS, LLC (“AT&T”), for itself and the federal First Responder Network Authority (“FirstNet”), proposes to install a telecommunications tower at property located on property located off of U.S. Route 4 in Mendon owned by CVMENDON, LLC, Tax Map 06-02011.006, in the Ridgeline Overlay District. The Project will allow capabilities for FirstNet, a national statewide interoperable network for first responders, as well as improving AT&T coverage in Mendon and Chittenden. 

The Certificate of Public Good petition was filed with the Vermont Public Utility Commission on May 6, 2020.  A complete copy of the petition and accompanying materials can be found here. In addition to these materials, additional photo simulations taken from various vantage points near private properties in Mendon can be found here.

AT&T supplemented its CPG petition on August 10, 2020, to reflect a reduction in height to 89’ from the original proposed height of 140’, and the use of a stealth support structure.  The supplemental materials can be found here. AT&T made a presentation for the supplemental materials to the Town of Mendon Selectboard, Planning Commission, and Zoning Board of Adjustment on August 19, 2020, which can be found here.

Further information is available from the Public Utility Commission’s ePUC website in Case No. 20-1149-PET.
