Speaker: Rick Meyer,
Topic: “Wireless Towers and Cell Poles in Potomac: What's here and what's coming..."
Rick Meyer is President of Montgomery County Coalition for the Control of Cell Towers (MC4T.ORG). MC4T is fighting for fair, transparent, and accurate regulation of cell poles and cell towers to minimize adverse impacts to surrounding land uses, respect the harmony and aesthetic character of our communities, and protect the safety of all residents.
When farmers bartered for supplies at Perry Store in Offutt’s Crossroad in 1880, Potomac was an agricultural community where transportation relied on the C&O Canal and horse-drawn wagons on dirt roads. Today, we see something far different.
Yet much remains constant. Great Falls, the Potomac River, and the Canal still draw us. Forested stream valleys, rural roads, and Potomac Village still define our community. The look and feel of Potomac today is no accident. Much of what we hold dear is due to the vigilance of volunteers working to preserve what is best here – a community that values our history, the environment, and our role as “Green Wedge” in the overall vision of county planners.
We invite you to become one of the team to insure the continued beauty of this area. If you are interested in preserving the beauty of Potomac, please become a member.
