Stop the installation of Mini Cell Phone Towers in the Town of Oyster Bay Now!
Verizon has contracted with a company called Crown Castle to install mini cell towers in Syosset/Woodbury in 2016/7 but your town is next. What we know now is that permits were issued for 29 projects and at least 22+ Towers have already been installed without public hearing or homeowner notification of any kind. Health risks, radiation concerns and public safety were not considered or brought to anyone’s attention prior to these towers going up. Some studies have shown that radiation can cause health risks ranging from headaches, sleep disturbances, leukemia, cancer, heart disease, chronic fatigue and diabetes.
Cell towers can create an eye sores and litter our streets with utility poles (even those areas with underground service) as well as decrease property values from 4%-10% immediately based on prior real estate resale studies. We must protect our families and property values NOW! The looks and feel of our neighborhoods are at risk!
Mini Cell phone towers are appearing at an alarming rate in front of homes and schools such as Berry Hill, Walt Whitman and South Woods Middle School. These so called "mini cell towers" are anything but mini. They are 35 to 65 feet tall and over 1.5 feet wide, you can stand inside them. They will install these towers on your front lawn if you don't act now.
Tell the Town of Oyster Bay to remove or relocate the existing cell towers NOW!
Take a look at this 35-foot tower already installed next to this home on Renee Road and across from Berry Hill elementary school: https://goo.gl/maps/d2UNscrZ6rm
We need stricter rules, which govern how, where, and when these towers may be erected. Sign this petition to let the TOB know you don't want cell phone towers installed outside your bedroom window. Failure to do so may mean health risks to you and your family and lower property values for you.
North Hempstead recently rewrote their ordinances to effectively stop residential deployments of cell towers without outright banning them. All cell towers must be located 1500 feet from any school or residence.
Tell the Town of Oyster Bay to put an immediate 6-month moratorium on all cell tower deployments thus buying us time to correct our ordinances.
Tell the Town of Oyster Bay to increase funding to the law firm hired to fight this scourge of cell towers on our community to make sure we are protected to the fullest extent of the law.
Tell the Town of Oyster Bay to Act NOW!
