    Cell Towers set to go up in Camp Meeker?

    Please forgive my cut and paste here, but I wanted to share this with the community. I have already emailed Cynthia Demidovich asking for an explanation and hope to hear back soon.


    Two towers have been approved at the Druids Cemetery

    The Sonoma County Planning and Permits Department has two completed proposals for towers less than a mile from Camp Meeker. One from Verizon, and another from AT&T. They have contracted with two of your neighbors to put in two fake tree cell towers. One is at 14425 Occidental Road, the other is at 14445 Occidental Rd. proximal to the Druids Cemetery. Citizens have only a week or so to object to this.

    If no one objects there will be no hearings and they will be approved.

    Send your letters to the PRMD at:
    PRMD 2550 Ventura Avenue
    Santa Rosa, California 95403 ATTN: Cynthia Demidovich

    OR e-mail her at: [email protected]
    Her phone number is: 565 1754

    What you can object to:
    The 1996 Telecommunications Act protects telecom companies, not citizens.
    You can legally object to this installation using the items in following list. Health issues are not considered much, although you can add them to the other objections.

    •Ugly! A fake tree at the Druid’s Cemetery, really? They worship trees.
    Does this attractive neighborhood need this blight?
    •No matter what your position is on cell phone use, this is a bad siting.
    It’s too close to residences, better siting are on ridges or open farm land.
    •Harm to wildlife. One of the abstracts in the packet is from Balmori.
    He has shown that migrating birds are confused by the magnetic fields
    from towers, fly around them, and then dive to the ground to their death.
    •Attractive nuisance. This means that young people may be tempted to
    climb this fake tree. This would melt their dental filings, and cause
    dramatic harm to them. Oh, and it might interfere with cell service.
    •Lowered home values. Although having cell services is a plus for some
    home buyers, having a cell tower close to a home is not!
    •We have adequate cell coverage. This tower will only benefit Verizon.
    •Harm to your health from radio frequency radiation. It falls off with
    distance from a tower. Think of your children, and pets!

    This isn’t a done deal! Camp Meeker chased Verizon out of here, we can do it again. THIS IS URGENT! Call or e-mail NOW! Cynthia Demidovich

    I spend quite a bit of time on rooftops with cellphone antennas on them. I am usually standing within 10 feet of them and I have never had an issue with my fillings melting, moving or otherwise being affected by the antenna. I am curious where you got your information. Also, next time you come out of your bomb shelter with your tin foil hat on, look around you. There are quite a bit of those fake tree cell phone towers around you. In order for cell phone service to work, you need cell phone towers. That is just how the world is going now.

    I agree with you that they're not likely to be health risks; I don't support efforts to restrict EMF sources in general. But that doesn't mean I think they're guaranteed harmless, either - just that the benefits outweigh the unproven risks.
    However, personal experience is pretty irrelevant here, beyond learning the helpful fact that it won't kill you quickly. Subtle biological effects are extremely difficult to determine, especially when they may take either long periods of time or interaction with other factors to reveal themselves. Just because I'm usually unwilling to accept people's claims that certain things are harmful, I'm equally unwilling to treat anecdotal claims as evidence of safety.
