American Towers LLC has applied to the Federal Communications Commission to construct a 200 foot cell tower just outside the Danbury town limits on Seven Island Road. The Town of Danbury does not currently allow towers but the applicant will likely seek a zoning amendment. This process will be public. If you have comments or concerns about this proposal, call or email Town Hall (593-2002,
). Meetings will be announced via this web site and newspaper.
The Town Council frequently discusses a concern for pedestrian safety as residents and visitors go about their business on Main Street. While the design of the street is unlikely to change, we can, as motorists, change our behavior. Not only is it dangerous for pedestrians, it has also been common for pets and wildlife to be killed, as well. Everyone is being asked to obey speed limits and to be alert for people and animals crossing the street. Please help us out.
Planning and Zoning Board Meetings--The Planning and Zoning Board meets on an as-needed basis and advertised in advance.
Recycling in Danbury-- Danbury residents who are currently receiving garbage service are encouraged to take advantage of curbside recycling. This service occurs on an every-other-week basis. Recycling information can be found at www.wasteindustries.com and www.co.stokes.nc.us.
