Decision on cellular phone tower expected Dec. 6

November 03, 1994

The Board of Appeals will decide next month whether a cellular phone company can build a 125-foot communications tower near an Ellicott City middle school.

The five-member panel plans to

make its decision during a work session Dec. 6 at 7:30 p.m.

The board adjourned early yesterday morning after holding two hearings that attracted dozens of residents fearful of electromagnetic

radiation from the proposed tower.

Cellular One, a subsidiary of Southwestern Bell Mobile Systems Inc., wants to build the tower near Patapsco Middle School on land it leases from First Church of the Naz

arene on Rogers Avenue. The tower would be about 185 feet from school fields and about 450 feet from the school.
