A proposal to build a 14-story cellphone tower in a Delaware cemetery and camouflage it as a bell tower is angering some residents of the area.
The News Journal of Wilmington, Delaware reports a permit hearing will be held Thursday about the proposed AT&T tower at All Saints Cemetery near Newark.
Opponents have gathered about 250 signatures of people who oppose the 142-foot tower, gathering some signatures online and others on paper.
An official with the Diocese of Wilmington says the cell phone tower could have a bell soundtrack for appropriate times or events and will be located in a remote area of the cemetery.
