The horse is out of the barn and there is no going back. Cell phones and cell towers are here to stay. However, there is no reason not to have common sense health and safety precautions applied to an industry hell bent on profit.

AT&T has requested pending major use permits to install cell towers in West Marin in multiple locations. One proposed site location is for a 70 Feet cell tower in Point Reyes Station, with 9 antennas and 16 Radios. It is under one mile from Point Reyes Station neighborhoods. ATT's proposed location is off Highway 1, north of Point Reyes Station. 

ATT's new 4G cell tower infrastructure is likely intended to be the backbone for future 5G network in West Marin. This has been AT&T and Verizon’s strategy in other areas. If installed too close to homes and neighborhoods it would devalue property and significantly increase radio frequency radiation in our community. 

Chronic exposure to wireless radiation has proven biological effects, and has been linked to neurological damage, reproductive effects and cancer. Pregnant women, small children, and the elderly are particularly vulnerable.

What you can do to oppose AT&T’s cell towers: 

  1. Voice your opinion at the Marin County Planning Commission public hearing- time and date to be determined. 
  2. Sign the online petition
  3. Contact the Marin County Planning Commission opposing this proposed tower at:

Sample Letter to Marin County Planner and Supervisors:

I strongly oppose the proposed ATT cell tower within one mile of Point Reyes neighborhoods.

Current FCC guidelines are inadequate and only protect from thermal effects of radiation, in other words, the FCC's only regulation marker is when human skin actually heats up from exposure to RF microwave radiation.  

Peer-reviewed published science shows RFR can cause a wide range of health problems: sleep problems, heart arrhythmias, anxiety, headaches, ringing in the ears, cancer and more. Peer- reviewed published science shows RFR is harmful to the environment. Children, the elderly, and those already ill are more vulnerable. 

This application could begin to lay the groundwork for 5G, which requires a dense network of cell towers. The proposed tower would add unsightly equipment, devalue property, and increase radio frequency radiation (RFR) in our neighborhoods, in our parklands, wetlands, bees, and bird habitats. 

I request that the Planning Commission deny ATT’s pending application in Point Reyes Station and protect community health and wellness of Point Reyes, minimize community exposure to unsafe EMF radiation, and to protect our fragile birds and wildlife from EMR.

I support West Marin and Point Reyes Station to prioritize wired over wireless for the health, safety and welfare of our community.

Sincerely, ______________________
