Longpoint 5GTower started this petition to Mount Pleasant Town Council

The Longpoint HOA is planning to put up a 140-foot cell tower as well as two 12’x24’ maintenance sheds at the amenity center recreation field.  These modifications would require the rezoning of the entire 5.98-acre tract of Longpoint property which houses the soccer field, basketball court, volleyball court, playground, and pool to allow for communication towers.  

This is a problem for several reasons: 

1) The Longpoint HOA did not receive a ⅔ vote of approval from community residents to lease the land to Beacon Towers as stipulated in the Covenants and Restrictions.

2) In addition to Longpoint homeowners, there are other stakeholders in this.  The Enclave, for example, has homes 250’ away from the tower site. Neighbors along Needlerush Parkway and Peaceful Way will have this tower looming over their households. The Longpoint pool will be 200’ away from the tower.

3) The cell tower creates a visual eyesore at the Longpoint Amenity Center.

4) Beacon Tower workers will have access to the leased land at all times (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) which is right next to our neighborhood park.

5) Having a cell tower nearby doesn’t guarantee better service - there a number of factors involved including obstructions, weather, landscape, and aggregate cell traffic just to name a few. 

6) Many communities around the country are instituting cell tower setbacks from homes and schools until more information can be obtained on the long-term health impacts.  Currently, the health effects are unknown so why put our children at risk? 

There are other locations for cell phone towers which don’t give up amenity center property or place a tower directly next to where the kids play.  Please take a moment to sign the petition to protect our children, our community and neighbors.
