Oops, mystery Baylen pole coming down

February 8, 2017

People have asked about the tall wooden pole that suddenly appeared on Baylen Street near the county’s parking garage. We’ve jokingly called it downtown’s latest tourist attractive – the tallest telephone in Florida.

Apparently, we weren’t far off.

According to City of Pensacola PIO Vernon Stewart, it’s an AT&T utility pole that the City Engineering permitted.

Currently, city officials are working with the carrier to have the pole relocated.
