As a resident of the North End of Torrington, I'm concerned about some news (possibly gossip) about the construction of a large and powerful WiFi tower in our neighborhood. It might be like those 100 or 200 foot tall steel structures we see on hilltops or alongside highways. Also, I've heard the tower may be erected on the grounds of the old Warrenton Woolen Mill, which is now a residential property. Or, if not at the old Mill, it might be built somewhere else in the North End.
If true, I believe this news is very important and should be reported to.all North End residents in terms of the journalist's 5 Ws (Who, What, Where, When Why). After all, aren't the larger WiFi towers (especially the really big ones) normally built on the outskirts of a town, on far away hilltops, or along highways (where we drive past them) -- not stationed in the center of a busy, heavily populated neighborhood? Putting a WiFi tower in the center of a neighborhood with so many homes, condos, apartments, schools, stores and other places frequented by people of all ages would be big news if true. But is this story true, or is it just a rumor going around?
Please, anyone with any information about this, would you share it with the general public here? Also, the local and area news media should look into this, and especially if found to be true, let us know precisely what they've discovered. WiFi towers erected in residential neighborhoods can sometimes be extremely controversial, and the residents of Torrington -- especially those who live in the North End -- have a right to know whenever something significant is being planned for their neighborhood. And this is well beyond significant, if true.
15 Highland Ave. Torrington, CTWhen is someone going to clean up 15 Highland Ave. or knock it down? This yard is strewn with garbage, steel wheels, abandoned vehicles and just all together needs to be cleaned up or demoed. We have enough blight in this city, lets start with the worst offenders and maybe the others will follow and clean up their acts.
30 Holley Place Torrington, ConnecticutThe sidewalk here was tarred but during the summer the tar was removed to reveal heavily cracked and uneven concrete.
This is a danger to the pedestrians especially with winter coming.
This is a nice neighborhood. Why is this project unfinished?

Ct. 06790 (860) 480-4439 We have lived on Cedar Lane for 33 years, and speeding on this narrow road, which is used by many people, to bypass Rt202 & RT 183 Intersection, by traveling, North West,on Cedar Lane from, Rt 202 to Rt 183 and then unto Greenwoods Avenue, to Rt 8, and/or Pinewoods Road to the industrial Park,Old Rt 8, and/or Burr Pond & Lakeridge. About 15 years ago, my neighbors, and I petitioned The Torrington City Council, and the Board of Public Safety to enforce the 25 M.P.H. speed limit on Cedar Lane, and to post signage of that speed limit. Over the past 15 years, there has been little, or no enforcement, of this speed limit, to the detriment of myself, my family, and my neighbors on Cedar Lane and Colin Drive's safety I respectfully request that some effort be made to enforce the 25M.P.H. speed limit and to replace/enhance the speed limit signage. Thanks you for your consideration and cooperation. Best Wishes Jack McKeon

Continual Barking Dogs:
Many evenings we are disturbed by barking dogs that cause other dogs to bark. The problem usually occurs between 9 P.M. and 10 P.M.; 11:00 Pm to 12:00 A.M and 5;00 A.M. and 6:00 A.M. behind my home (142 Cedar Lane). The dogs are either unattended or given the hours mentioned, they are "URGING" their owners to take them out to do their business. I have been a dog owner, breeder, handler, and have shown our dogs norwegianelkhounds) up and down the East Coast. I have live here for 33 years and I'm confident that my dogs where well trained and maintained to not be a nuisance to my neighbors. I would appreciate the same courtesy from my neighbors at Torringford Farms. Thank You for your consideration and cooperation. Best wishes Jack McKeon
74 Holley Pl Torrington, CT 06790, USAThere are two garages on this property. One is in need of some work to shift it upright. The other is beyond repair, falling over and has a large hole in the roof. It is very dangerous and needs to be torn down before someone gets hurt.
Newfield Road Torrington, ConnecticutWhen will they fix the drainage on Newfield Road right past the @#$% traveling north? Wait until someone gets killed then react? Dam.... The water runs down the bank to both sides of the road then freezes and stays there. The town just thinks sanding will do the trick. Not.... Almost lost control there several times. I usually don't @#$% about things like this but something needs to be done.
