Pittsfield ZBA Takes No Action On Cell Tower Petition

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff

The 115-foot tower is sited near a city water tank.
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Zoning Board of Appeals took no action on a City Council petition to re-permit the 877 South St. cellular tower.
 
The ZBA voted Wednesday to adhere to City Solicitor Stephen Pagnotta's opinion that legally the board cannot re-open the special permit.
 
"After a decision has been finalized, to review the hearing or rescind the hearing is not allowable under the statute," Pagnotta said. "The purpose of that is to ensure that permits, and any rights that come under those permits, are final and the applicants can rely on them."
 
The petition was in response to the essentially complete cell tower that abutters say was put up illegally without proper notice.
