Cell Tower Protest Draws Neighbors and Politicians

By Bonnie Adler

Two dozen Westport residents carrying signs saying “No Cell Towers in Our Neighborhood” protested today in front of a Greens Farms Road home whose owners have granted permission to build a cell tower on their property adjacent to I-95.

The protest at 92 Greens Farms Road at the intersection of Hillspoint Road and Greens Farms Road came as North Atlantic Towers floated two balloons, one at 100 feet and one at 150 feet, to show the possible height and obstructions of the proposed tower.

Sympathetic elected officials, including Westport First Selectman Jim Marpe, Planning and Zoning Chairman Chip Stevens, and state Reps. Jonathan Steinberg of Westport, Gail Lavielle of Wilton, and Kim Fawcett and Tony Hwang of Fairfield, joined protesters.

All, who either currently represent Westport or some of its neighborhoods—or hope to do so after the November election—addressed ways to change any proposed plans to build a tower in the residential neighborhood.
