This petition had 222 supporters

Join thousands of other individuals nationwide who have successfully fought cell antennae facilities in close proximity to homes and schools! 

Verizon Wireless and The CBR Group are proposing multiple cell wireless facilities including radiation emitting antennas within 100 yards of family homes at 5833 Moraga (near Estates), the corner of Mountain and Thornhill near the library and Montclair Elementary, on Thornhill across from the two preschools, on Glenwood Glade in front of homes there, and 4 other locations.  Cell facilities in this type of location have been linked with:

1. Decreased property values/desireability of nearby homes, e.g., see

2. Increased health problems, especially in children*

3. Safety risks to children

4. Unsightly and noisy equipment not appropriate for a residential neighborhood

The intersection at Moraga and Estates has been ignored by the City and is already fraught with dangerous traffic conditions, poor maintenance of vegetation, and unsightly, deteriorating infrastructure.    Say NO to increasing problems at this intersection and to other antennae sites next to homes and schools.
