POTLATCH HILL: Cell tower should be denied
Kudos to Shawna Lambert’s Letter to the Editor in Sunday’s paper. She covered all the salient points on why the proposed cell tower near the only entrance and exit to the Potlatch Hill neighborhoods needs to be denied. We look forward to the day when these ugly cell towers are obsolete, but in the mean time we need to mitigate the damage it is doing to our bodies and environment.
Wire Idaho encourages people to get their homes hard wired, have a landline phone and put their cellphone in airplane mode when not in use. Microwave radiation is endemic in our society but our home should be a refuge from this constant bombardment.
The proliferation of cell towers needs to stop when we have ample coverage in the Potlatch Hill communities as was proven by AT&T’s own documents. The people in these communities have spoken — it is a fact that their property values will plummet with a cell tower in their neighborhood. They value their families and the wildlife in their area being a safe haven from wireless radiation.
We must be ever vigilant in putting a halt to these big tech companies invading our neighborhoods.
