    NEWFANE — The Vermont Public Service Board has approved a 139-foot cellular tower in South Newfane.
    AT&T has said the tower will provide much-needed service.

    But the project has faced opposition from some residents who say it will be too close to their homes.

    The Brattleboro Reformer reports (http://bit.ly/Zig7Wa) Newfane has an ordinance regulating communication towers. AT&T acknowledged that its proposed tower would violate height and setback requirements in that law. But it bypassed the local ordinance and applied directly to the state Public Service Board.

    There's a separate effort to construct a cell tower in Newfane.
