BREAKING NEWS: Hundreds of Vinton, Virginia Residents Stop 137-Foot Cell Tower
"Plans for a new cell phone tower were shot down in Roanoke County Tuesday night, after massive opposition from residents.
The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to reject the plan, which called for the rezoning of Stonebridge Park and the construction of a 137-foot-tall cell tower in its center.
“I’ve heard from the citizens, and at the end of the day I represent the citizens of my district,” said board member Jason Peters, who represents the Vinton area.
More than a dozen residents attended Tuesday’s board of supervisors meeting, all opposed to the project."
