What about the fire pit?
Seriously? That sounds like a bit much without having a designated area to smoke. What are all the employees going to do since I would guess about 75% of them smoke cigs, not to mention other stuff. Doesn't affect me either but doesn't go with the laid back atmosphere they are trying to have.
You are way off assuming 75% of employees smoke cigarettes. My guess is the number is closer to 10% as as only about 15% of the population in VT smoke cigs.
its far from a "bogus use of wildlife protections" (as any Bicknells Thrush google search will show you its range covers a good deal of VT).
I know a guy who used to install those, he said they're WAY more expensive than a normal cell tower. That's a pretty crappy one too, they make them with longer "branches" that look even better than that. I do agree it helps blend a bit though.
The towers are on the nose, yes? The nose is much lower than the true Summit above the Gondi. Don't worry, Stowe is away from the approach track for 33 at BTV. Camel's Hump is of much greater concern for pilots, especially in cold weather.
