Hearing officer rejects communications tower


A petition for a special exception to allow a 225-foot mobile communications tower in Pasadena has been denied by Anne Arundel County Administrative Hearing Officer Robert C. Wilcox.

In the decision Thursday, Mr. Wilcox said he denied West Shore Communications' petition because there was no testimony to show why a 164-foot water tower on the property behind the Eastern District Police station could not be used for communications antennas.

About a dozen angry residents from Chesterfield and Westwood Manor protested the company's application at a June 1 hearing.
