DOIN’ THE CELL-TOWER SHUFFLE

The Fair Haven Borough Council has once again changed the designated site for the town’s first cellphone tower, should it ever be built.

The Asbury Park Press reports that the council voted 3-1 to locate the tower three doors west of the police station and youth center on Fisk Street. Turns out the police station property, which the council had approved last month, would require an OK from the state Department of Environmental Protection.

The DEP had previously rejected a borough plan for a land swap involving Green Acres property at Fair Haven Fields on Ridge Road. Assemblywoman Jennifer Beck of Red Bank has asked the DEP to reconsider that decision, the Press reports.

Some of the neighbors of the new site are not pleased with the three-doors-down solution. The Press story has this quote:

“I can’t believe they chose that location. It is a horrible location,” said John Hanson of Maple Street, which is around the corner from the site. “It is 45 feet wide by 100 feet deep. You’d think it was someone’s side yard.”

Meanwhile, Verizon Wireless and a partner still have a plan pending before the zoning board to construct a tower on property owned by the Church of the Nativity on Hance Road.
