Reading the FAA document linked above, it mentions:

Quote:
Alteris proposes to install a wind turbine at the facility to offset electricity costs with clean energy.
I wonder if the tower there now is meant to measure wind speed and other site conditions to determine the feasibility of actually going ahead with the installation of the wind turbine.

Something like shown on pages 5, 6, and 8 in this document:

I don't know how old Bing Maps street view pics are but if you look at the steet location mentioned previously on Bing can see horizontal arms that look a lot like the pics in the above document.

By George I think he's got it. The pics starting on 5 look very much like what is on the tower. I'm convinced that's what it is.

I think this will confirm it, "a 50 meter high meteorological tower".
