Rockland: Neighbors Rejoice Over T Mobile Cell Tower Withdrawal

T Mobile has withdrawn their application for a special permit to build a 150 foot tall cell tower at Zero White Road on residential land in Rockland.

Neighbors have been banning together to fight the proposal, as they worried about aesthetics and property values.

Neighbor Donna Dicarli is delighted that T Mobile is backing out.

“The whole neighborhood is very happy. They’re jumping up and down and screaming! We’re all really happy that it won’t be in our neighborhood.

It was 150 feet away from one of our neighbors who has two children, and we didn’t want it in our neighborhood. We don’t to have to look at it and hear it every night, because it makes a lot of sound.”

Neighbor Maureen Clark has been leading the charge against the cell tower proposal.

“We didn’t see it coming, but we’re thrilled! We thought we were going to have to keep fighting this fight. I mean, we already paid an awful lot for an attorney, so I’m glad this has come to an end,” Maureen said.

T Mobile is now looking into moving the location of the proposed cell tower to an industrial zone, rather than a residential zone.
