A Proposed Telecommunications (Cell Tower) Facility

The Civic Association received a notice from Crown Castle Fiber LLC

informing our Community of their intent to install a new cell tower

at 2801 Colebrook Drive. This cell tower would be surrounded by

residential housing and a public school building.

We have found against having these cell towers in our Community 

before and we will need your help in preserving our environment

and the healthiness of our residents. If you are not aware, 

the emissions from these types of telecommunications facilities

can be quite detrimental to the health of us all.

Please take a moment to read attached documents.

We will keep you updated with all responses and 

any community meetings scheduled addressing this matter.
