The Planning Board unanimously approved the Special Permit requested by the Communication Committee and the Board of Selectmen to build a communication tower on the Rhodes Drive water tank site. Earlier in the year Town Meeting approved the final appropriation to fund the project. The Public Safety Communication Committee and my colleagues on the Board of Selectmen threw their support behind the effort.
After the Town Meeting vote, the Communication Committee was required to file for a special permit with the Planning Board. They were required to demonstrate how the project was in the best interest of the town and to show it would be built in accordance with our By-Laws and the laws of commonwealth. The communicaiton committee met its burden and the Planning Board okayed the special permit.
