[9:23 AM, 2/18/2018] Sheila Mani: As a resident living in the Irvington community, we are deeply concerned by the Verizon cellphone tower planned to be built in Our Lady of Guadalupe Church.

This is truly concerning to us as residents of the Fremont community. As this location as a park in which is where our children go to play right across the street. There 3 schools, Irvington High, Robertson High, Green Elementary in the immediate vicinity. We also have 3 other schools near by. This poses a significant safety hazard for these kids.

The second concern is about the property value being impacted. We have worked very hard to earn the value of the property. We do not want it to be taken away by a tower.

The tower also poses security threat due to high value equipment present in these towers. In addition, any repair and maintenance work has to be done in the 12 am - 6 am time range. This will be a huge source of noise pollution and disturbance in the neighborhood.

There are several commercial locations such as Automall or Walmart. Instead of choosing those the Fremont Planning Commission has chosen to put it right in the middle of a residential area. Even though there are 9 registered cellphone towers and over 76 unregistered towers, We are concerned the is the need for one more tower in this area.

Lastly, If new safety issues or security issues crop up, Should we expect Fremont planning commission and Our Lady of Guadalupe to take responsibility for all these issues and make them liable?

Please do not let this happen in any residential community. No parent or homeowner should have to go through safety and security hazard in their community.
