Proposed cell tower would affect Acadia NP views: friends group

ACADIA NATIONAL PARK -- A proposed cell phone tower will have significant impact on national historic resources, including views from multiple mountain summits and historic hiking trails in Acadia National Park, within a 4-mile radius.

In early March, a vertical string of 4.5-foot-diameter red balloons was floated at the approximate location and height of a proposed 195-foot cell tower off Buttermilk Brook Road on Freeman Ridge in Southwest Harbor. Photos taken during the test by Friends of Acadia provide a graphic representation of what the proposed tower would look like to hikers.
