Stop the Lindenhurst Cell Tower

Lindenhurst residents were shaken when we found out Lindenhurst Village was considering adding a commercial cell phone tower to the center of our town near schools. The site is located in the middle of a residential neighborhood —near Alleghany Ave. Elementary School and Lindenhurst Middle School. Even with just a few days notice,we needresidents to show up at the Village board meeting, Thursday March 19, 2015to voice their concern and displeasure. Lindenhurst Village Hall 430 South Wellwood Ave at 7pm.

We now have to take action and let our voices be heard.

Our concerns:

While some “experts” claim the science is not settled on the health risks, independent studies spanning the globe (most notably Germany and Israel) say that living within 1500 feet of a cell phone increases your risk of cancer by anywhere from 300-400 percent, and countries around the world have banned towers being constructed within that proximity to schools. Cell towers are structurally unsafe, and frequently catch fire and/or collapse.

In addition, falling environmental debris (such as ice) from the height of a tower can cause serious damage to surrounding homes, and result in death if a human being is struck.
Property values in the area can reportedly drop anywhere from 2-to-25 percent, and the federal government will not back a new mortgage for a home purchased within a certain radius of the tower.
