Make no bones about it - the Sea Cliff cell tower controversy is coming to a boil.
In an ambitious display of public relations, Mayor Bruce Kennedy attempted a lengthy explanation of what the village’s position was on cell towers in our community. The treatise appeared with his photo on the front page of this newspaper.
Meanwhile, a disgruntled pocket of residents of Altamont Avenue and Cromwell Place continues their mobilization against the possibility that a tall cell tower will be erected near their homes on the grounds of the Village Recycling Center. Two dozen of the zealous group attended the May 10 village board meeting, exclaiming their dismay and disappointment that the specter of such a tower is still hovering over their heads.
The neighbors have printed a “Speak Out” flier to distribute around town, inviting their neighbors and fellow citizens to join them at the next village board meeting in village hall this Monday, June 14, at 8 p.m. It could be another pivotal meeting that will determine whether or not Sea Cliff needs or wants any cell towers within our One Square Mile. A large attendance will show the mayor and trustees how important this issue has become to village taxpayers.
