      Pursuant to provisions of General Statutes § 16-50m and Section 16-50j-21 of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies, notice is hereby given that the Connecticut Siting Council (Council) will conduct a public hearing on Thursday, April 25, 2013, beginning at 3:00 p.m., and continued at 7:00 p.m., at the West Hartford Town Hall, Room 314, 50 South Main Street, West Hartford, Connecticut, and thereafter as necessary.  The hearing will be on an application from Cellco Partnership d/b/a Verizon Wireless for a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need for the construction, maintenance and operation of a relocated telecommunications facility at 139 North Main Street, West Hartford, Connecticut.

The purpose of the hearing is to hear evidence on the applicant’s contentions that the public need for the facility outweighs any adverse environmental effects that would result from the construction, operation, or maintenance of a tower, ground equipment, and access road.  The 3:00 p.m. hearing session will provide the applicant, parties, and intervenors an opportunity to cross-examine positions.  The 7:00 p.m. hearing session will be reserved for the public to make brief statements into the record.  Cross-examination of parties and intervenors will resume, if necessary, after all statements have been heard.

The Council will conduct a public field review of the proposed site on Thursday, April 25, 2013, beginning at 2:00 p.m.  The applicant will fly a balloon during the field review to simulate the height of the proposed facility, weather permitting.

            Applicable law for this proceeding includes the Public Utility Environmental Standards Act, General Statutes § 16-50g, et seq., and Sections 16-50j-1, et seq., of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies.

            The Council directs that all testimony and exhibits be pre-filed with the Council and all parties and intervenors by April 18, 2013.  In accordance with the State Solid Waste Management Plan, the Council requests that all filings be submitted on recyclable paper.  Please avoid using heavy stock paper, colored paper, and metal or plastic binders and separators.

            Individuals are encouraged to participate through their elected officials, and other party/intervenor groupings.

            Any person seeking to be named or admitted as a party or intervenor to the proceeding may file a written request to be so designated at the office of the Connecticut Siting Council, 10 Franklin Square, New Britain, Connecticut 06051, on or before April 18, 2013. 

            Parties and intervenors will be allowed to submit briefs and proposed findings of fact within 30 days after the close of the hearing.
