Fight The Cell Tower

Centenary College, a Hackettstown based organization is proposing to erect a large cell tower at their Equestrian Center on Schooleys Mountain in Long Valley, NJ. Local residents are organizing in opposition to the project.

 

Let's protect our families, neighborhood, and property values.

PROPOSAL

objections

issues

Residents objections are focused around several key areas:

  • Impact to character of the neighborhood
  • Health concerns, especially on children and infants
  • Negative effect on property values
  • Have alternate sites been evaluated

 

The project does not meet building code requirements and requires several variances. The tower would be 171 feet tall, exceeding the 120 foot regulated maximum height by a large margin. Also, the proposed location is too close to residences in conflict with setback requirements.

Centenary College and Sprint are proposing the construction of a large cell tower and building on the Centenary College Equestrian Center located on Califon Road in Long Valley. An ornamental windmill will be constructed at the top of the tower.

 GREAT NEWS!! - MAY 6, 2015

At the May 6th Board of Adjustment meeting, variances were denied for this project. After lengthy debate late into the evening, the Board voted. Two of the three variances required all five Board members to approve. The approvals failed to get the required votes, effectively stopping this project from proceeding. The variance for setback from a neighbor's property was a major concern for the Board.


We want to thank the Board members for their thorough review of this proposal over the past two years. We also thank all neighborhood and community members who supported and participated in our efforts to stop this project.
