The Great Valley Planning Board meeting scheduled for March 23 was cancelled at the request of Horvath Communications. Horvath has an application in front of the board for a cell phone tower.
According to town engineer Aaron Tiller, the company’s application is missing a letter from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation stating there would be no environmental impact.
The board had anticipated voting on the tower at the March 23 special meeting after tabling the vote on March 9 due to the missing paperwork.
Since the March 9 meeting, Horvath discovered that they had neglected to request a review of the current proposed location by the OPRHP, which was moved to satisfy an adjacent property owner’s concerns. They only had a letter for the original proposed location.
Tiller said they have submitted a new request and are awaiting approval.
The Ellicottville Times will update readers on the issue as soon as more information is available.
