Dick Graf, who is returning home from South Carolina has been on the phone with Mary Miller, the attorney representing Branch Towers, LLC. They sent a letter to the MPC (and Dick called to confirm they have received it) saying that they are withdrawing the application “because they can’t meet the grading requirements.”
LHHA and its cell tower committee, the 7 neighbors who brought the lawsuit, Forrest Orr and his team of activists who produced the signs and got the letter mailed to all residents of the peninsula, Pat and Alex Shivers, John King – all of us can relax and smile.
Please take down the signs but save them as Branch is looking for another site. That could be a long process and Mary Miller remarked that hopefully it won’t be in Lakemoor Hills.
We all believe this is a significant victory for our neighborhood and demonstrates what informed neighbors can do to preserve the beauty of the “Quiet side of the River.”
Charlie Mulligan on behalf of the travelling Dick Graf.
