Telecommunications pole

A rendering provided by AT&T shows what a new telecommunications pole at the corner of Pond and Depot Streets would look like.

Telecommunications giant AT&T may have discovered a way to appease Stowe folks when it comes to its months-long efforts at finding a place to put a cell tower in the village: make it pretty.

After an initial proposal by AT&T to erect a pole and cellular antenna near the corner or Pond and Depot streets was rebuffed in December by the town planning commission and selectboard, the carrier then suggested one on Pleasant Street, a residential area on the outskirts of the village historic district.
