Rooftop design protects historic viewshed

Founded in 1788, Marietta was the first permanent settlement in the Northwest Territory. Today, the central city is both a designated historic district and a bustling commercial area. A traditional cellular tower was not an option, so our telecommunications professionals developed an innovative rooftop design that protected the historic viewshed. This design was approved by the city and accepted by the State Historic Preservation Office. By using an existing flagpole, we minimized the visual impact. We used a photo simulation to demonstrate the project impact.
