City of Santa Fe, AT&T and Burger King/Phillips 66: Do not build a cell tower adjacent to Gonzales Community School

A large cell tower on a property adjacent to a school poses many risks for children. The tower will be located on the property at the Northwest corner of St. Francis Drive and W. Alameda. The property has a Burger King and a Phillips 66 Gas Station.  If the tower caught fire or fell, it could injure children or cause a major explosion. In addition, this intersection is the gateway to the historic area of Santa Fe and a large tower here would be a visible distraction to all traffic entering Santa Fe from the North on US 84/285 and traffic coming from I-25 on St. Francis Drive. It will also affect the views along the beautiful Santa Fe river trail. The property borders an arroyo which is a 100 year flood plain.  The arroyo is full of large trees.  This location is too close to a major intersection, a flood plain, and most importantly to a K-8 school.

We respectfully request that AT&T and the City of Santa Fe work together to find more appropriate locations for large cell towers than adjacent to a school with young children.
