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 Meridian High School, addressed 121 Mustang Alley, Falls Church, VA 22043. 

The proposal is to replace an existing light pole with a 140-foot tall monopole and then restore the field lights back to the original height.
It will also 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.

Update #1: On Wednesday, May 19th we will be holding two identical online Town Hall webinars consisting of a short presentation followed by a question and answer time.
