Notice of Scheduled Balloon Test – CONFIRMED DATE AND TIME

To validate the projected visual effects of the Project as shown on the Viewshed Map, AT&T is scheduling a balloon test at the site of the proposed Facility.  AT&T proposes to fly a balloon at 140’ AGL, to be photographed from Vt Routes 7, 7A, 30, and other public areas in Manchester.  The photographs will then be used to generate photographic simulations of the Facility from various vantage points within one-and-a-half to two miles of the Site.  Links to these photographic simulations will be added to the Project website, and a supplemental notice will be sent to recipients of this letter once completed.

AT&T confirms that the balloon test is planned for Wednesday, March 22, 2023 between 9:00 am and 12:00 pm. Due to the variable weather conditions in Vermont that can affect the accuracy of the balloon test, the exact date and time of the balloon float may be postponed if determined advisable by Green Mountain’s technician. Please continue to visit the Project website or contact your local officials to inquire.
