August 19, 2008, 6:30 p.m., Public Hearing, Public Meeting Room, Chesterfield County Administration Building, 9901 Lori Road off Route 10 in Chesterfield: Chesterfield County Public Hearing on Invisible Towers' initial application to construct a cell tower in Brandermill (Case No. 08SN0277). Invisible Towers, LLC representatives withdrew their application to construct a cell tower on Brandermill Country Club property.

Here's what one Brandermill resident had to say about the result of the outcome:
"I was pleased tonight at the Chesterfield County Planning Commission meeting to see that Invisible Towers, LLC, the cell phone tower company, withdrew its filing with the county to install the tower at the Brandermill Country Club.

I would like to thank the BCA Board members who acted promptly at the August 18 meeting, demonstrating prudent leadership by voting against the installation of the cell phone tower in our community.

As a new resident of Brandermill (one month) and a new co-NRC rep of Winterberry Ridge, I was glad to see community residents emerge as a strong force, voicing their opinions to the board via e-mails and attending at least three meetings to voice their concerns ...."
