40 New Locations Made Available for Potential Wireless Infrastructure Projects

We chose Milestone for their extensive experience working with utility and government landowners throughout Virginia.

Wireless tower owner and developer, Milestone Communications, announced a marketing agreement with Wise County Public Service Authority (WCPSA) to promote 40 locations in its system as potential sites for wireless infrastructure projects. Milestone will include the locations in its portfolio of land sites in the Mid-Atlantic region for wireless carriers to consider in infrastructure expansion and upgrade plans.

Named after a governor of Virginia, Wise County was formed in 1856. The population of over 41,000 makes it the largest jurisdiction outside of any metropolitan area in Virginia. WCPSA provides drinking and wastewater utilities to Wise residents through a widespread distribution system that includes 200 miles of water line, 17 booster pump stations and 16 water tanks. The property on which the system operates can also be used for wireless tower projects.

“We chose Milestone for their extensive experience working with utility and government landowners throughout Virginia,” said Alan Harrison, WCPSA Executive Director. “Their relationships with wireless carriers and the communities they serve will help us to easily and quickly respond to tower construction opportunities, which will help Wise County realize improved wireless services throughout the County.”
