About the Project
In an ongoing effort to provide quality wireless service, AT&T and T-Mobile have identified your community as one that will benefit from continued and improved network coverage. Both AT&T and T-Mobile had telecommunication equipment existing on a county Water Tank on Butterfly Lane. That long-standing Water Tank is being replaced and will thus be taken down. The new Water Tank will not permit telecommunication equipment on it. In order for AT&T and T-Mobile to maintain and expand their current coverage the city has requested Milestone Towers to erect a new monopole to accommodate all wireless carriers, including reinstalling the existing AT&T and T-Mobile equipment that has been providing service to the area for years.
Thus, Milestone Towers is proposing a wireless telecommunications facility near the new Butterfly Lane Water Tank, addressed 6129 Butterfly Lane, Frederick, MD 21703.
The proposal is for a 165-foot monopole and will include ground equipment required to operate the facility.
The ground equipment will be located at the base of the structure in a secure fenced area. AT&T and T-Mobile will be the first wireless carriers to relocate on the proposed tower.
