7:15 PM INFORMAL DISCUSSIONS RE: NEXTG APPLICATION...HEARING AT 8 PM TUESDAY
Release Date: February 06, 2012

The Greenburgh Town Board will be holding a public hearing on Tuesday evening, February 7th at 8 PM at Greenburgh Town Hall on an application by NextG Networks to place antennas around town. This proposal has generated some controversy in recent months.

 

Prior to the hearing the town's consultant HDR Architecture and Engineering, P.C., will be available for an informal public discussion at Town Hall beginning at 7:15 PM. They will discuss its analysis and findings related to the application of NextG Networks of New York (NextG) to site a distributed antenna system (DAS) and associated equipment along public rights-of-way in the Town using existing wooden utility poles owned either by Con Edison or Verizon.

 

Currently, NextG provides the DAS technology for wireless carrier MetroPCS in the City of White Plains, the City of Rye and the City of New Rochelle. HDR will discuss its review, which included a general assessment of NextG’s application, focusing on facility operation, coverage issues, and safety concerns related to conformance with electromagnetic radiation hazard criteria and radio frequency emission levels.

 

The DAS technology proposed by NextG for Greenburgh would be similar to the existing systems in Rye, White Plains and New Rochelle. Essentially, small antennas would be installed on top of existing wooden utility poles in the proposed areas and cables would connect the devices to a pole mounted on a metal or fiberglass utility box. It is understood for this project that NextG’s primary customer is the wireless carrier MetroPCS.

 

You are invited to attend tomorrow evenings hearing at 8 PM. You are also welcome to participate in the informal analysis at 7:15 PM to 8 PM with our consultant. Your questions are welcome. The Town Board usually does not vote on applications on the same day public hearings are held. So, no vote is anticipated tomorrow.

 

PAUL FEINER
