While it has not yet been brought to a public hearing, a cellular tower is being proposed – and currently going through the application process – to be built in Washington Township.
Cellular service provider Sprint is the company bringing forth the application, but the company is looking to place its tower on Centenary College’s Equestrian grounds on Califon Road.
Zoning administrator Barbara Margolese said the tower would be in the shape of a windmill, and will need a height variance. Sprint is proposing the tower to be 171 feet tall.
Centenary’s equestrian facility on Califon Road encompasses 65-acres of land. The school offers bachelor’s and associates degrees in different coursework dealing with equines.
The school’s Equestrian Center Enhancement Project launched “Building on Equine Excellence” in 2009 to seek support for the improvement of facilities at the equestrian center, according to its website.
Request for comment from the school regarding the cellular tower being built on the Washington Township property was not immediately returned.
The application is scheduled to be on the Board of Adjustment’s Dec. 4 agenda, Margolese said.
