A continued hearing on a proposed cell tower in Dover that would be located in the area of Evergreen Way in Medfield has been postponed to June 30, Medfield officials said last week

The upcoming hearing was originally scheduled for Monday, May 19 at 6 p.m. and later rescheduled to Wednesday, May 21. Officials now plan to meet on June 30 at 6 p.m. at the entrance to the property adjacent to 24 Evergreen St. in Medfield for a site walk, and subsequently meet at 7 p.m. at the Dover Town House for adjourned the hearing.

The project had originally called for a 93-foot mono-pine cell tower to be installed on land just off Evergreen Way in Medfield that abuts the Dover-Sherborn Regional High School campus, according to DoverSherborn.org.  

School officials in Dover, however, indicted at a recent meeting of the Dover Planning Board that they would liked a cell tower to be built on school property in Dover, according to Medfield Selectman Osler "Pete" Peterson's Medfield02052 blog

Medfield residents have related to the Medfield Board of Selectmen that traffic in the area was of concern regarding the project, and relocating the cell tower to Dover school property would be a good move, according to Peterson's post.

I am all for it if we can finally get 5 bars of 4G downtown.

I am not an engineer but why that location right on Harding St where it will be so visible when we have so much undeveloped land on Rt 27 between Medfield and Sherborn?
