Object cell phone towers erection at Carter Road

May 5, 2008 To: The Lawrence Township Planning Board & Town Council, Lawrence Township From: Parents of children enrolled at the BMS-Lawrenceville Child Development Center (CDC), Lawrence Township Dear Board members, We are writing to voice our strong objection to the proposed erection of cell phone towers on the Carter Road site. We are concerned for the safety of our children who spend up to 10 hours, 5 days a week at the CDC (and will therefore be in close proximity to these towers for extended periods of time) and strongly urge the township to seek alternate locations for these towers. We are aware that this topic is on the agenda for the meeting this evening but are unable to attend in person to voice our concern. We would like to emphasize, however, that our inability to attend should not be interpreted as a lack of caring about this issue but attributed to truly unavoidable circumstances. First, all of us have young children to take care of and the timing of these meetings on weeknights coincides with their dinner and bedtime schedules. Second, apart from the first planning meeting, we have never been given more than 24 hours notice of an impending planning meeting. Finally, communication regarding the meetings have only come through word of mouth from other parents within the center, especially to those of us that do not live in the immediate Lawrence area. These issues have severely limited our ability to attend and participate in the planning board
