NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- New Canaan residents are getting a clearer picture of what a cell phone tower built in town would look like in new mock-up photos in a study presented to the town by AT&T.

The proposed 150-foot tower would be built at the New Canaan Transfer Station at 394 Main St.

The cell signal would improve in many parts of town, but the infamous "dead zones" in the northern part of town still would have a weak signal due to the geography of the land.

According to the report, parts of the tower would be visible in most southern parts of New Canaan and even into Darien and Norwalk.

Town officials are pushing for construction of the tower, which could generate $100,000 in revenue from other carriers piggybacking off the signal. Officials also said the lack of cell signal is a liability during emergencies, like Hurricane Sandy.
