Parents fight plans for cell tower near West Haverstraw day carePosted: Updated:
Parents in West Haverstraw are fighting plans to build a cell phone tower near their children?s day care center.
Dozens of parents packed West Haverstraw Village Hall Wednesday to show their opposition to the proposed cell tower. Omnipoint Communications is looking into putting a tower off Route 9W. Parents say the location is too close to the Cricket Town Day Care Center, and they fear for their children?s health. The owner of Cricket Town says she'd close if the tower is built near the center.
The zoning and planning committees agreed with concerned parents that the proposed site is too close to the day care center. They are recommending Omnipoint Communications look at other locations and get back to them at a meeting in December.
