Neighbors to fight tower proposal (Maine)

Neighbors are vowing to fight a proposed amateur radio tower off Pennellville Road.

“It’s as appropriate to build a tower in Pennellville as is it to have a McDonald’s in Baxter State Park,” said abutting property owner Lee Silverman.

Silverman fears the tower, if constructed, could mar the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape.

Silverman — along with other abutters Dino Valaoritis, Clare Johnson and Alicia Heyburn — have hired Troub Heisler attorney Chris Neagle to fight the tower proposal.

In October, Joseph Fallon applied for a permit with the town to construct the 120-foot-high radio tower. Fallon, whose main address is listed as Topsfield, Massachusetts, on the permit application, owns a 3.5-acre parcel on Middle Bay off Pennellville Road.

On Monday, Fallon said he would prefer not to comment on the matter, since the issue remains unsettled.
