A solution has emerged in the controversial placement of a Verizon Wireless tower on the east side of the city.
At this morning’s Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce meeting, City Administrator John Fawcett announced that a verbal agreement has been reached between Bowling Green State University and Verizon to temporarily place a tower on campus until another site is identified.
Fawcett said that the new permanent site would not be at the northbound Interstate 75 exit at Wooster Street, where work to put in the 155-foot cell tower had already begun.
The placement of the tower in that spot had previously raised the ire of city and university officials, who have been working to change the location since last month.
Dave Kielmeyer, BGSU spokesman, said the new solution is acceptable to university officials.

"We are pleased that Verizon Wireless has agreed to a temporary solution to address their service needs in the area. We are cautiously optimistic that this will end construction activities at the site near I-75 that is opposed by the University and the city of Bowling Green. We look forward to further demonstrations from the company that they have abandoned their plans for this site."
