This wireless telecommunications tower facility is proposed to meet AT&T’s and other FCC wireless carriers’ need to reliably serve the public in the immediate area. Homeland Towers would own, maintain and operate the tower facility project. The facility will be unmanned with no sanitary or water facilities and would consist of a 110’ tall monopine structure with faux branches extending another 5’ above the top of the monopine within a fenced compound in the central portion of the approximately 5.16-acre parcel. AT&T’s antennas would be placed at a centerline height of approximately 106’ with unmanned equipment installed at grade within the compound. The tower and fenced compound are designed to support the antennas and equipment of other FCC licensed wireless carriers along with the Town of New Canaan’s public safety antennas and equipment.

The Connecticut Siting Council has exclusive jurisdiction over the location and siting of wireless telecommunications towers in the State of Connecticut and as such, no local zoning or land use approvals are required. The public information session that is the subject of this notice is being held as part of Homeland Towers’ and AT&T’s municipal consultation with the Town of New Canaan in accordance with Section 16-50l of the Connecticut General Statutes. The purpose of the municipal consultation is to provide information to the Town about the proposed facility so that the Town can provide Homeland Towers and AT&T with recommendations or preferences regarding the siting of the proposed wireless telecommunications facility.
