The Washington County Planning Commission approved the following site plan proposals Monday:
o A 199-foot monopole cell tower on Boyd Mountain. The tower will be south of Interstate 70 between Big Pool and Gehr roads.
It will include six antennae with room for six more, Planner Lisa Kelly said. The first six antennae have been leased to Verizon, a representative for the tower's developer said at the meeting.
The Washington County Historic District Commission objected to the tower because of its proximity to Fort Frederick, but the Board of Zoning Appeals approved a special exception to allow the tower to be built.
