To Build 130-ft. Tower

CRANFORD – Westfield residents John and Jenny Schuvart of Manitou Circle notified The Scotch Plains-Fanwood Times on Monday morning that Verizon Wireless, Omnipoint Communications, New Cingular Wireless (AT&T) and Sprint have filed a joint application with the zoning board of the Township of Cranford for approval to construct a wirelesscommunications facility at the Cranford Swim Club, located at 201 County Park Drive.

The Schuvarts said they were concerned about the 130-foot “monopole” that the facility would feature, especially “after [successfully] fighting the one at Wychwood Gardens.”

The applicants have applied for use, height and setback variances.
The zoning board has scheduled a public hearing on the joint application for next Monday, October 15, at 8:15 p.m. at Cranford’s municipal building at 8 Springfield Avenue.
