Milestone Receives New Zoning Approvals
Two New Tower Locations Approved for Construction

Milestone is pleased to announce that two new wireless infrastructure sites have received zoning approval. First,  a 120-foot tower will be constructed at  Port Charlotte Middle School in Port Charlotte, FL, as part of Milestone's marketing agreement with Charlotte County Public Schools . This was the company's first partnership in Florida. The second installation will be a 105-foot panel structure at  Chinn Aquatics and Fitness Center in Prince William, VA, as part of a 15-year agreement with Prince William County Public Works. Milestone expanded this lease agreement in 2015 to include additional county-owned sites.

This will be Len's second time participating in the race. He competed in 2012, and lessons learned during that experience inspired him to write his book, What Spins the Wheel.
