CITY HALL — The Planning Board on Monday put off a vote to mandate an environmental checklist for wireless tower applications over fears that the information would be beyond the expertise of commissioners and give residents false hope that it could be used to keep the equipment out of their neighborhoods. “I think the checklist is suitable, but I have a concern that we treat it as a disclosure of information with each [permit] only, and not as a basis to approve or disapprove any conditional-use permit that comes before us,” board member Emily Gabel-Luddy said.
