The City of Bowling Green
has finally met with Verizon representatives to talk about a different location
for a controversial cell phone tower.
Two weeks ago, Verizon
Wireless started construction on land at the I-75 northbound on-ramp, off
Wooster Street. This came as a shock to city leaders and BGSU administration,
since both were adamant they did not want a 500-foot cell phone tower at the
entrance to the city.
Representatives from all
three groups met and discussed alternate locations.
Mayor Dick Edwards said
Verizon made it clear that the current location was not their first choice, and
they would prefer to build the tower on the university campus to serve their
main customers in Bowling Green – BGSU students and faculty.
"We have high hopes that
there will be another location identified on campus that will be mutually
agreeable," Edwards said.
Work has not ceased at the
current site, but the mayor said the meeting was productive and he is confident
that communication will continue and a different site will be settled on.
