NO CELL TOWERS NEXT TO OUR HOMES AND SCHOOLS!
Smart, educated and proactive cities are pushing back against the FCC deployment of cellular infrastructure that threaten residential neighborhoods. Many cities have implemented strict telecommunication guidelines with a minimum 1500 foot distance from schools and homes. These restrictions aim to protect us all, and can still provide the level of coverage and new technology necessary without ruining our beautiful city, rich ecosystem or health.AestheticThese highly visible, highly contentious, highly disruptive commercial equipment destroys the character of our neighborhoods and schools and are negatively impacting our natural environment.Environmental ImpactCollapse of insect populations, the base of food for birds and bats.Rise in bacterial resistance and bacterial shifts.Damage to plants and trees.Health Concerns The long term effects are unknown, and the only measure the FCC requires to test on RF are at the ground level and through heat. “More than 230 scientists who have published peer-reviewed research on EMF and biology or health have signed an appeal to the World Health Organization calling for precautionary health warnings and stronger regulation of wireless radiation.” Condemned PropertyResearch indicates that over 90% of home buyers and renters are less interested in properties near cell towers and would pay less for a property in close vicinity. Documentation of a 20% drop in property value is published in multiple surveys.
