To demonstrate the visual impact of a telecommunications tower, on Friday, April 14th, a balloon fly will take place near the proposed new tower location from 10 AM to 1 PM.  Please feel free to join us in the cul-de-sac at the end of Fairway Island, off Hole 11, where members of our team will be on hand to answer any questions. If the weather prevents a successful test from happening, we have selected Monday, April 17th as our “rain date.”

Calvert Crossland is currently putting together a Conditional Use application to go before the County. Hope to have this completed by the end of the year. The hope is to construct the tower in the Spring of 2024.

Wednesday, February 21, 2024:

The proposed Prospect Bay cell tower received a Conditional Use approval by the Queen Anne’s County Board of Zoning Appeals on February 21st, 2024. We are currently completing the requirements to file for a Building Permit and ordering the tower manufacturers to begin fabrication of the tower.  The forecasted date to commence construction should be within the first 2 weeks of June 2024. The estimated time of construction is 6 weeks, weather permitting. Calvert Crossland forecasts Verizon Wireless fiber circuit and service to be available Late Fall of 2024. We continue to reach out to AT&T and T-Mobile to interest them in locating on the tower.

Wednesday, April 10, 2024:

Received the Conditional Use Approval letter from the County.

Friday, May 31, 2024:

Geo-Tech and Structural Design reports have been received and the building permit is about to be submitted!
