DALTON, Mass. — The town will raise its bars beginning this summer, when plans to erect a cell phone tower come to fruition.

Dalton officials issued a building permit to Verizon Wireless to construct a cell phone tower that will give service to an area that has largely been lacking it.

According to the town's Select Board, the tower is expected to be operational by July 1.

After augmenting its original design, a special permit application submitted by Verizon to build a 105-feet tall, square "faux smokestack" and 12-by-30 foot equipment shed at 455 West Housatonic St. was approved by the Board of Appeals. Doing business as Pittsfield Cellular Telephone Co., the town initially approved Verizon's special permit application to construct a circular design at the same location on July 18, 2013.

The proximity of Crane & Co.'s Byron-Weston Mill to the proposed plot of land owned by Sinicon Plastics was meant to be aesthetically fitting to the circular smokestack design. However, Verizon deemed the project too cost prohibitive.
