Valley Road residents oppose cell tower. Just once it would be interesting to read a news article, “residents welcome development” but that is never going to happen in my lifetime (unless that proposal for a minimum security prison on Round Hill Road gets traction – the locals might welcome the convenience). Here’s the part I enjoy:
“I think this is a really lousy proposal,” River Road resident Peter Moss said. “In fact I would call it abusive to the neighbors who live so close to it, abusive to the public because it adds an ugly projection to a lovely view of a pond many people appreciate and most of all abusive to every concept we have of watershed protection and water supply protection.”
I’ve posted two pictures of “this lovely view of a pond ” so readers can decide for themselves what exactly Mr. Moss is imbibing (he might be a prison guard still recovering from the Super Bowl sick day). Although he might think that view would be ruined by a cell tower, no one else will.
While it is true that up in this stretch of Cos Cob residents just yell to each other from their front stoops, those of us roaring past in our Mercedes are annoyed by the lack of cellphone reception and under Dollar Bill’s theory of sacrifice for the greater good, I say the tower should go up. For that matter, maybe the town should open up that filter plant “pond” to swimming and we can drop the idea of building a new pool in Byram.
