  • The word-count limit for letters is 350, including signatures (with exceptions at the discretion of the editor).
  • Letters may be edited for length, style, and clarity.
  • Email letters to or send by regular mail to Editor, The Harvard Press, P.O. Box 284, Harvard, MA 01451. Deadline is 5 p.m. Tuesday to be included in that Friday's edition.
  • Letters should include your name, address, and phone number. Phone numbers and house numbers will not be printed; they are used only for verification.
  • We will not print anonymous letters, form letters, blanket-mail letters, or letters that we consider libelous.
  • We will not print more than one letter from the same person in any given week.
  • Letters must be signed by individuals; we do not accept group names as signatures. Up to four people may sign a letter on behalf of a group; all must provide addresses and phone numbers.
  • During contests for public office, we will not publish endorsement letters the Friday before an election. Based on space availability, we may limit the number of endorsement letters in a given week, but will strive to print a balanced representation of letters received. We will not publish negative letters about any candidate.
  • All letters may be read online by Harvard Press subscribers who are logged-on registered users of the website.

Proposed Verizon tower: clarification

A fair estimate is that the town of Harvard would earn in excess of $60,000 a year if the Verizon tower were built on town land instead of 12 Woodchuck Hill Road. If the nonconforming tower is allowed to be built at 12 Woodchuck Hill Road, the proceeds would reward the owners for turning our neighborhood into an industrial site with no direct financial benefit to the town.

How long the town will endure the new proposed tower and whose responsibility it will be to remove it need to be clarified. Verizon’s attorney has chosen not to share the specific financial arrangements, though he opined, if I remember correctly, that $1,500 per month per array (for up to five arrays) was a fair guess.

Finally, the balloon test, which failed last weekend, would indicate the initial proposed height of the tower only. It would not indicate the massive array of structures that could be attached or even the width of the actual tower. It would not show the additional footage that Verizon’s attorney said could be allowed to add to the height, without town review, after the initial installation.
