Help Save Brookshire from Cell Towers and Preserve Community
We need your vote to help protect our community and prevent a 29-foot Verizon cell tower from being installed in our subdivision. Verizon is proposing a plan to install a cell tower in two of our neighbor's front yards in place of existing light pole. Other neighborhoods in Woodstock have faced the same proposal and voted against it. They won due to the overwhelming number of cons a cell tower presents.
There is only a small area within Brookshire (a few houses) that has subpar cell phone reception. Within those few, only those with Verizon will benefit. Those few who would benefit, can just as easily improve their reception with a reception extender within their own houses. The pros do not outweigh the cons and a cell tower presents far too many risks to overlook.
- Multiple forms of cancer (humans and pets). Infants and children are more susceptible to the effects of radiation.
- Miscarriages and birth defects
- Attention disorders
- Lower property values
Even though our local and state governments have done little to stop/relocate this tower, the tower cannot be built without resident approval. Therefore, signing this petition is in the neighborhood’s best interest and our BEST chance at stopping the construction of this tower. Help protect Brookshire from the negative effects cell towers will bring to our community by signing this petition.
I demand that the Verizon cell tower not be built within the neighborhood of Brookshire nor in the immediate area.
