They think is will be a guyed (or “guy,” if you prefer) wire tower like the one show in this article.
But my sources say it will be self-supporting without guyed wires.
“If this is true,” one correspondent writes, “it is a project the size of the CN Tower in Toronto and would make Crystal Lake a tourist destination (restaurant, observation deck, etc.).
“I don’t think 3 or 4 acres of land will accommodate such a tower.”
That’s why I have put a photo of the CN Tower above.
It’s 1,815 feet high and has its “Sky Pod” at 1,465 feet, according to the official brochure where I found the photo and height information.
Somehow I don’t think something that substantial is going to be proposed in Crystal Lake.
