Communications tower hearings set

The Lunenburg County Planning Commission is scheduled to hold two public hearings on Tuesday, July 16, 7 p.m. at the Lunenburg County Courthouse to consider a communications tower in the county.

One public hearing regards a conditional use permit to construct a communications tower located east of Plank Road in Lunenburg County.

The tower is expected to be on a site 100 feet by 100 feet and located on a tract of 294.71 acres of land.

The conditional use applicant is Cellco Partnership, doing business as (DBA) Verizon Wireless. The tract of land is owned by Cherry Wattsboro, LLC.

The other public hearing will review the conditional use permit and the “general or approximate location character and extent of each feature” to determine whether it conforms with the Code of Virginia and the Lunenburg/Kenbridge/ Victoria comprehensive plan.

The comprehensive plan for Lunenburg was recently renewed.
