Northwest High Community to Discuss Cell Antenna Proposal Tonight in Germantown

The Northwest High School community is meeting tonight to discuss a proposal to place a telecommunications antenna on the school’s roof.

According to a notice on the NWHS PTSA page, representatives from Montgomery County Public Schools and T-Mobile will be providing more information about the cell antenna proposal.

MCPS spokesperson Gboyinde Onijala said these types of decisions are made with community feedback.

“If MCPS is approached by a company that wants to place a cell tower at one of our schools, we have a very thorough process we go through to gather input from the school community and the neighborhood,” Onijala said. “If the community doesn’t want a tower at the school, it isn’t built there. If the community supports a tower, then the applicant still must get the necessary approvals from the county.”

You can find an online list of cell towers at schools in Montgomery County, here. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the media center at NWHS.
