    The Germantown Village Boardpostponed action on a conditional userequest that would have allowed for a150-foot monopole wireless communi-cations tower in the northeast sectionof the village.

    The tower is proposed by AT&Tand would be located on a 25-acreparcel at W124 N13185 WasaukeeRoad.

    Resident Charlie Tur of Cedar Lanecompared the situation to the movie"Groundhog Day," in which the sameday keeps repeating itself over andover again.

    Tur explained that the villagerejected a monopole tower proposednearby 20 years ago.

    "It cost many of us time, effort andmoney to defeat that proposal," Tursaid. He then asked how many homeswould be nearby if that tower hadbeen approved. Tur said that 13 yearsago a tower was proposed nearby butfollowing objections from residents acompromise in which the tower waserected within a silo was reached.

    "Are we telling the future residentsthat we are building a tower farm in

    northeast Germantown or are weencouraging residential develop-ment?" Tur asked.

    Marty Peck, a member of the PlanCommission, noted there are two tow-ers nearby that are disguised as silos.Peck said the compromise reached 13years ago came after the village hireda consultant to research the matter.

    "The property value concern is a

    valid concern we have right now," hesaid.

    He also questioned why AT&T did-n't seek other options to co-locate onnearby towers and said "there's onlytwo dozen people who would beaffected by this." He said the companycame to Germantown after Mequon

    uilding a new home in the future."When we heard that this was going up,

    at whole reason was practically gone,"arkiewicz said.

    Richard Rogers, a representative fromT&T, said the company seeks to look at co-cating on other towers as a first option.

    "We have studied the co-location oppor-nities in the community, and they're just notere," he said.

    Rogers also said there is a "coverageole" in the area for AT&T and other wirelessoviders.

    "People are not going to build

    400,000-$500,000 homes unless theyave good broadband coverage, becauseoadband coverage is the future," Rodgersid.

    Three residents spoke in favor of the pro-
