Scenic Hudson says an expert’s report finds the proposed tower replacement above county Route 31, atop Blue Hill does not need additional width can actually be constructed smaller and shorter than what is already there.
The tower issue in question stems from a Livingston Planning Board approval of Mark Eger replacing twin telecommunications towers with a single, wider tower.
