Stop BTC Antennas Above Our Kids' Heads
Fellow concerned BTC Members and parents, please read *this
has important implications*:
Like us, you may not be aware of an application just
presented to the city by the BTC Board and ATT to mount a grouping of 9 to 12 AT&T 4G LTE Antennas (each over a foot in height) on the roof above the snack
shack that will serve a majority of Tiburon.
Per the TRK report, this installation creates
measurable radiation on the surrounding pool area and homes, which includes our
families congregating poolside, children attending the 9-4 pm daycare/camps, or
waiting in line at the snack bar.
Given the effects of cellular radiation, municipalities have adopted a measure requiring that wireless facilities not be located where children congregate. This is because of the thin developing skulls of young children. The Tiburon ordinance specifically states, “Wireless Communications Facilities should avoid locations within, or close proximity to, the following uses: dwelling units; hospitals; child care centers; and schools.”
So I ask you, why is the Board, which is supposed to
represent its membership base, trying to put this antenna farm above our children’s
heads? This is something that should have been presented to the
membership base, as it creates a material health concern for our kids, as well
as potentially impacting our ability to solicit new members.
ACTION: Please sign e-petition below requesting the application be withdrawn for further discussion with the membership base. Also please forward to others who may also be concerned.
