VIDEO: On Friday, the antennas were out up on the cell tower near Presidential Estates which has been the center of controversy for the last week, first reported on TLS. Residents from Chestnut, Somerset Meadows, Elmwood Village, Chateau Park and Presidential Estates are furious over the Cell Tower placed on the Townships’ property just outside the Presidential Estates development.
Although there’s no official data available confirming the dangers of the radiation emitting from the cell phone towers, residents say, “We’re not interested in our neighborhood becoming the testing ground for such data”, saying there’s a greater risk of Cancer, and higher rate of Miscarriages as a result of radiation exposure.
Residents are still attempting to fight it and have the tower removed.
It’s unclear when the Cell Tower will go into operation.
get over it….your not going to get cancer from it and its on town property just let it go and enjoy the better service in ur town
Thank all commitee members for getting you better reception: M Lictenstein, M Miller, R Coles, B Singer and Mayor Langert
hotdogs have been proven to be cancer causing too, yet no one seems to be botherd by this fact.
Actually, this tower will lower the home values withn site of the tower and that is something that is a real problem.
The other huge issue here is that the township was NOT transparent with their dealings and that should be a major concern for ALL.
Big talkers #1 & #3 lets see what happens when it goes up in your back yard, you’ll be crying like a baby
The people in presidential dont know how to protest, they should be lying down in front of the tractors, complaining on the scoop wont get you to far you have to play hard ball
The saying that cell towers cause cancer is “Junk-Science.” Somebody not understanding the effects of electromagnetic radiation came up with that theory and it spread like wildfire. People naturally fear that which they do not understand and this is a perfect example of such a phenomena. You receive far more electromagnetic radiation from using a cell phone, or even being in the same room as someone using a cell phone, than you receive from cell phone towers. The cell phone towers causing cancer issue is much like the Salem Witch Trials in colonial America where the woman had to prove she wasn’t a witch. This is the 21st century, not the 17th century; let’s act like it actually is. Either everyone burn their cell phone at the stake, or get used to having cell towers in everyone’s neighborhood. I say hurrah to better communications, and to the income the tower will bring to our town.
At least they will have better cell phone service to call and complain about the better cell phone service
Please comment respectfully.
Actually from what I hear, they are using the money they get from the cell company for the ballpark. It’s not going to lower your taxes or anything like that.
the only true comment here is about lowering property values, however I must respectfully comment on that issue. There have been many other situations that this town gave no concern with the residance that reside in a community as far as the effect of what the town OK’D to be allowed in a single family zone . Many of us who have lived here in Lakewood for many many years have seen changes that we had no voice in being done in our neighborhoods , so I ask why would tthat now be an issue when the wishes of existing residance have been ignored in the past??
Where do we protest? Is there a petition to sign? Info pls! Thanks
there seems to be a problem that is very disturbing with posting oppinons & comments on this site ,for some reason certain comments that be contrary to what is popular oppinion are held “captive” to “Your comment is awaiting moderation” even after other comments at a later date are “OK’Dto be posted
If you cannot be open to different oppinions then this forum here is a waste of space in my oppinion . Controlling comments that are not malicious , in bad taste or offensive is a poor way for open and honest dialog of issues that are posted here and I find that very disturbing
they should fight to the bitter end
guess what i dont have to worry MY TOWN is kool with stuff like this
