Stop Ordinance 2012-122 Cell Tower Permit for 28579 Center Ridge Rd

      Laurie Frankito

      Westlake, OH

PLEASE NOTE THIS PEITION IS TO BE SIGNED BY WESTLAKE RESIDENTS ONLY!!  Thank-you!      This cell phone tower is in a residential area and allowing it will detract from the City of Westlake's ability to protect its citizens by setting an unwanted precedent. Once this tower is built the city will be pressured to allow others in similar residential areas to be built without recourse. By signing this petition you are indicating that you are a Westlake Resident. You are concerned about home values & desirability of the above mentioned area. You are strongly opposed to this proliferating in our city for the sake of maintaining property value, community desirability and reputation, as well as the physical beauty of our city.

To:
The City of Westlake, Ohio- City Council and Mayor Clough
Stop Ordinance 2012-122 Cell Tower Permit for 28579 Center Ridge Rd

Sincerely,

      Petition Organizer

      The meeting tonite went very well and I believe we covered nearly every aspect for our point of view. Thank-you for all who attended, your presence was determined yet professional!!

      Mr. Odonnell did a great job, too. And it was a pleasant surprise to see Mr Mangel from the Porter library and hear his perspective!

      Personally - I prepared a great deal of information and resources for the councilmen via email and yhardcopy that was delivered this evening. It included my planned outline for my say at the hearing on Thursday. In order to keep email to a minimum I will attach this info to my reminder email for Thursday!

      I believe we have done all we could do at this point to prevent this precedent setting agenda from being passed. The last and final attempt to be heard rests on Thursday's meeting at 7:45 pm!!

      WE NEED HIGH NUMBERS IN ATTENDANCE ON THURSDAY AT 7:45 PM!! PLEASE COME - BRING YOUR SPOUSE AND SIGN THE ATTENDANCE RECORD!! BRING ANY SUPPORTING FRIEND !!!!

      Petition Organizer

      Hello everyone! This is a friendly reminder that our council meeting is this Thursday at 8 pm at Westlake City Hall!
      The cell phone company has been ordered to submit information regarding the Porter Library and Center Ridge Post Office as sites that are interested in hosting their tower and meet the needs of cell coverage for our area. I believe this is not what the company wants and am not at all comfortable with resting at this point. I have been advised by contacts at City Hall that we need to represent at the meeting on Thursday! If we want to pressure our councilmen to take the risk of upholding our ordinance we have to physically show up in opposition!
      Please make an effort to show your support in person Thursday night - and bring a friend!! Please forward our link to Westlake friends and neighbors!! I hope there isn't an empty seat in the house!
      Thank-you and see you Thursday!!

      Posting some links to keep you informed - it's like you were there but it didn't interrupt your day in the least!! Check it out:
      1) Westlake Planning Commission Meeting - plenty of information on the tower and incriminating remarks by the attorney. Tower coverage begins at 1hr:55min.

      http://mediasite.cityofwestlake.org/Mediasite602/Play/92419b45944d45a9a7814e9cf57322ed1d?catalog=9972f4a4-292b-4234-890c-aa6723569a80

      2) Westlake City Council Meeting Thursday 1/3. How did your councilman behave? Take a look at the expandable beast pictures that the company intends to openly lease to others while going to the lowest bidder on the first non-government owned land in Westlake!! Tower coverage is first issue and only about 20 minutes in length.

      I recently moved in this neighborhood and there is no way we would have moved here had we known a cell phone tower would be erected in the front of the development. Protect our home values and our health by building it elsewhere!

      This will totally affect the value of our homes and potentially our health. PLEASE do NOT let this cell tower be built in our backyards.

      This tower will be in clear sight of our backyard windows and from our patio. It would destroy the beauty of the area which brought us here and would significantly reduce property values. The health risks alone should require an alternative location.

      Citizens must have the right to be heard by the city officials. They need to be allowed to express their opinions on the issues that confront them.

      The cancer link and property value are concerns for me. Surely another location can be found.
