Wireless group may not back bylaw changes
Even though planning board members had finally completed the drafting of Article 26 on Personal Wireless Service Facilities in time for inclusion in the Warrant, their problems were not over. Paul Gill of the Wireless Communications Advisory Committee (WCAC) revealed that the WCAC, co-sponsor of the article, has some misgivings about the wording and may not support it. "They should have attended tonight's meeting so that we could discuss it," declared exasperated board member Michael Epstein. Gill explained that the WCAC planned to meet on Friday afternoon to vote on sponsorship. "It would be very unfortunate if the WCAC votes not to support the article," Epstein retorted. Others grumbled that the WCAC was leaving the planning board to "hang in the wind." Whatever the committee's decision, the cell tower issue continues to polarize the people of Carlisle.
The WCAC meeting, which had been scheduled for Friday, April 14 was postponed until Thursday, April 20. The next scheduled meeting of the planning board is April 24 when they will host public hearings on the four articles that they are sponsoring on the annual town Warrant.
