Leggett wants Cell Tower on Blair HS Field, No Review or Approval from Board of Education (BOE holds Easement for all of field)

Deed of Easement
Montgomery County spent $1,767,000 in Program Open Space funds to acquire the land for the Blair High School athletic fields.

Deed of Easement
Then, Montgomery County gave the Board of Education an easement for the use of "all of" the land for "play fields."  See the Deed of Eastment starting on Page 4 of the document below.

Program Open Space funding is pretty clear on its purpose as providing funding for recreational or open space land.

Giving the Board of Education an easement for all of the recreation area is also pretty clear.

Yet, the Montgomery County government run by County Executive Ike Leggett has decided to come on to the Blair High School "play fields" and build a cell tower for public and private (commercial) use without any approval from the easement holder the Montgomery County Board of Education.

County Executive Ike Leggett's staff will present their plans at a meeting this evening at Blair High School.
