Balloon Test / Photo Simulations
To assess the visual effects of the Project, Vertex and AT&T conducted a balloon test at the site of the proposed Facility on Sunday, March 21, 2021 between 9:00am and 1:00pm. Vertex flew a balloon at 140’ AGL, which was photographed from VT Route 103, identified scenic resources, and areas of predicted visibility in Rockingham. The photographs were then be used to generate photographic simulations of the Facility from various vantage points within a one to two mile area of the Site, including those designated historic and scenic resources identified on maps to the Rockingham Town Plan.
The photographic simulations are now available at the links below:
