About the Project

In an ongoing effort to provide quality wireless service, AT&T has identified your community as one that will benefit from improved network coverage. 

Milestone Towers is proposing a wireless telecommunications facility at The John Dickinson School, addressed 1801 Milltown Road Wilmington, DE 19808. 

The proposal is for a 132-foot stealth tree pole and will include ground equipment required to operate the facility. 

This equipment will be located at the base of the structure in a secure fenced area. AT&T will be the first wireless carrier to locate on the proposed tower.

Update #5: Special Use Permit (2022-0012-A) was approved by the Board of Adjustments on March, 24th. 

Update #4: Special Use Permit (2022-0012-A) will go before the Board of Adjustments on Thursday, March 24th @ 6:00 pm.  Also, based on community feedback during the Town Hall we have included a gate at the Grendon Drive access point which will allow foot traffic but not allow unauthorized vehicles access.
