Homeland Towers, LLC ("Homeland Towers") will perform a balloon test at 52 Montrose Station Road, Cortlandt, New York
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that Homeland Towers, LLC ("Homeland Towers") will perform a balloon test at 52 Montrose Station Road, Cortlandt, New York (the "Site"), in connection with its proposal to locate a wireless communications facility (the "Facility") at the Site.
The Facility is proposed to include a 140-foot monopole, with panel antennas thereon, together with related equipment located within a secure fenced area at the base thereof.
The field test will be conducted on Saturday, July 23, 2022 at the Site, or in case of inclement or windy weather on that day, on Sunday, July 24, 2022. If conditions on the first weather day of July 24 are not amenable, the field test will be scheduled for each consecutive day thereafter (e.g., Monday July 25, Tuesday July 26, etc.) until the balloon test is completed. The balloon shall be flown for at least four consecutive hours sometime between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. weather permitting.
The purpose of the balloon test is to establish the approximate location and height of the Facility so that computer generated visual renderings can be prepared from various viewpoints. The balloon test will consist of an approximately three-foot diameter brightly colored balloon being floated on a tether line to a maximum height of 140 feet above ground level. Please contact Homeland Towers' attorney, Michael Sheridan, at 914-333-0700 if you should have any questions in advance of the balloon test.
This case is currently pending before the Town of Cortlandt Planning Board as PB Case Number 2019-5. Additional information about the project can be obtained by contacting the Town Planning Department at 914-734-1080.
