Exciting News 4/14/22

On April 14th, 2022 during the monthly meeting of the NYS Adirondack Park Agency, project P2021-0207 was passed through committee and by the Board of directors. We thank the APA for their thorough analysis of this project and bringing it to approval. The Regulatory Programs Committee and staff put in many hours of work both in the field and office assuring regulatory compliance and engineering success. This was a unique partnership of TARPON TOWERS II, LLC, T-MOBILE NORTHEAST, LLC, NEW CINGULAR WIRELESS PCS, LLC (AT&T), HERKIMER COUNTY, HAMILTON COUNTY, and The TOWN OF INLET. The materials submitted and used for the presentation to the board can be found on the APA’s website apa.ny.gov

Your comments and support were crucial in getting us to this point. We have hit our funding goals up to this point, and over 200 letters of support for the tower were received by the APA.

We are excited to move to the next phase of our project and will keep you updated as we can. The Inlet Emergency Communications Tower Committee thanks you all for your support.

We are almost there..

It’s public comment time for APA Project 2021-0207 – Town of Inlet Shared Use Public Safety and Wireless Communication Tower!  Please recognize the importance of this step in our process.  The public comment period expires April 7, 2022, allowing for the application to be considered at the APA’s April 14-15 regular meeting.

Remember what approval of our project would mean: the solution to communication problems in the Inlet, Raquette Lake, Big Moose, and Eagle Bay areas for our emergency responders! The responders would have quicker response times for those in need and enhanced safety for our volunteers.

Your input of personal experiences that resulted from our lack of good communication would be a positive way to support our project. Can you help us with this?  You only have until April 7.  Just use the link to contribute electronically.  The link has a snail mail option as well.
