Another Faso Misstep

Back in 2013, the Livingston Planning Board approved a 190-foot communications tower--a taller, bigger, and more visually intrusive tower than the one that's there now--to be built by Eger Communications on Blue Hill, in the Olana viewshed.

The Olana Partnership and Scenic Hudson filed a legal challenge to overturn the approval and succeeded in getting a ruling that the FCC review the proposed tower under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservatioon Act of 1966. That review has not yet been completed. Now, the Register-Star reports that Congressman John Faso is calling for the construction of the tower to proceed: "Faso calls for FCC to move forward with Eger tower replacement in Livingston; almost three years of waiting for a proceeding."
