About the Project
In an ongoing effort to provide quality wireless service, Verizon Wireless has identified your community as one that will benefit from improved network coverage.
Milestone Towers is proposing a wireless telecommunications facility at Waverly Park addressed 2179 Warwick Way, Marriottsville, MD 21104.
The proposal is for a 132-foot stealth tree pole and will include ground equipment required to operate the facility.
This equipment will be located at the base of the structure in a secure fenced area. Verizon Wireless will be the first wireless carrier to locate on the proposed tower.
