Public comments on AT&T pole sought | News

PIGEON FORGE — Community members are invited to submit comments on a proposed AT&T telecommunications pole that would be more than 32 feet tall, including the antenna.

According to a March 4 public notice, the location of the proposed pole is 1141 Community Center Drive. The structure, if approved, would be near the Pigeon Forge Community Center and Pigeon Forge Public Library.

The pole itself is planned for 27 feet in height, with the antenna bringing the total height to 32 feet, 6 inches. That is roughly equivalent to a three-story building.

The notice reads, in part: “Any interested party wishing to submit comments regarding the potential effects the proposed facility may have on any historic property may do so ….”

The public notice did not include a deadline date for comments, and The Mountain Press was unable to reach a spokesperson by press time.

Comments should be sent to Project 6121001087, MB EBI Consulting, 6876 Susquehanna Trail South, York, PA 17403. Comments can also be made by phone at 717-472-3070.
