WASHINGTON COUNTY - The Washington County Planning Commission will decide Monday night whether to approve a 199-foot cell tower proposed in a Ringgold-area apple orchard.
The tower would be owned by Shentel Shenandoah Mobile Co. and built on John R. Martin's 58-acre Ivy Hill Farm at 13840 Smithsburg Pike (Md. 64), south of Ringgold.
The land is zoned agricultural.
The tower is being built for Sprint, but at least two other cell phone carriers have expressed interest in using the tower, Leonard Greisz of Shenandoah Mobile Co. said last summer.
