The City of Encinitas approved the Sprint/Crearwire application to install Wimax antennas at the Cabo Grill. The notice of decision is included as an attachment. In their decision, the planning department said there was no scientific proof of property devaluation near cell towers.
Twenty five (25) letters were submitted to the planning department, and five (5) of us attended the administrative meeting May 24 to present our case against the installation of more antennas. When people like us know that wireless radiation has biological effects, that there is a health concern associated with the cell towers, then we would want to have our home be out of range of the cell tower. We believe other informed people would have the same behavior. We have found a scientific study that demonstrates a 20% devaluation near towers, and are searching for more.
The appeal hearing has been set for Wednesday July 21. We will need help for this meeting in the form of presenters and ten (10) or more 3 minute time slot donations for the presenters. The information to be presented is outlined in the appeal attachment. In addition, letters are needed from the residents of the gated community of Sea Bluff to the south, from the two small gated home areas just east of Vulcan and La Costa, and from the Vulcan property owners across the street from Cabo ( devaluation is more the closer to the cell antenna).
This appeal meeting has got to be "The Buck Stops Here" type of meeting. There are applications pending for three (3) additional wireless facilities to be located at the Coast Highway/La Costa/Vulcan intersections.
We plan a neighborhood meeting to review the issues and align the resources for the appeal. Please tell us how you would like to participate and assist here. We estimate the appeal and related paper costs to be about $400, and would be grateful for any contribution to this work.
Please contact us for questions and for more information on the issues.
