Parents to hold press conference this Thursday May 17 at 10am, opposing proposed cell tower site near our schools and homes. Show you support and attend, or if you can’t make it, e-mail the resident group and ask how you can help.
Because most members of our Planning Board and City Council approved changing our city’s ordinance to allow proposed cell towers on private churches in R-1 zones, Burbank residents are now faced with the threat of a cell tower or wireless facility near their homes and schools. This is not what we wanted or deserve.
This just in from Save Burbank Neighborhoods:
On Thursday, May 17 at 10:00 a.m. parents of children attending Bret Harte Elementary School and Luther Burbank Middle School in the city of Burbank will hold a press conference to protest the construction of a 2000 watt cell phone tower by T-Mobile in their residence-only (R1) neighborhood.
The facility would be built on the roof of the Little White Chapel at 1711 North Avon Street, just 528 feet from Bret Harte Elementary School and 1,056 feet from Luther Burbank Middle School.
So every school day the 1,700 children who attend these schools would be subject to electromagnetic radiation which has been linked to brain tumors, cancer, suppressed immune function and other serious diseases. Children are at greatest risk due to their thinner skulls and rapid rate of growth.
Burbank Parents/Save Burbank Neighborhoods Press Conference
When: Thursday, May 17 at 10:00 a.m.
Where: 1648 N. Avon Street, Burbank 91505 (across from the proposed Cell Tower site)
