ROCKY RIVER — City officials are working with AT&T to change how the Project Lightspeed build-out would take place here, and, if it does not change, they're prepared to ask the utility to come back at a later date when it can be changed.
Officials from both parties met on June 29 to discuss the future of the build-out and related details. There is no construction on the $4.6 million project currently taking place in the city, but several boxes already have popped up, including one on Bonnie Bank Boulevard. Residents from that street and Aberdeen Road oppose the large boxes coming into their neighborhoods.
Once the build-out is complete, there will be 34 boxes on public and private easements and right-of-ways in residential and commercial areas around the city. Mayor Pam Bobst said the city decided to ask AT&T to redesign the build-out to provide a better fit for the residential neighborhoods."
