CITY OF EAGLE RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS ADA COUNTY DISAPPROVES THIS TOWER! click updates

City of Eagle Mayor & Council DISAPPROVE! (see updates)

OVERWHELMING MAJORITY SAY NO!

Out here, we don't have to settle for a tower in ANYONE'S backyard!

ATTENTION:  Our Eagle Neighborhood off Beacon Light between Ballanytne & Eagle Rd  IS THE NEXT PROPOSED SITE FOR A MONO-PINE CELL TOWER!  IF ADA COUNTY COMMISSIONERS APPROVES THE Conditional Use Permit MANY SURROUNDING HOME OWNERS WILL BE FORCED TO LIVE WITH IT, OR MOVE. 


While we are not opposed to improved telecommunications, there are much less controversial, and intrusive areas for such development where safe placement is AWAY FROM OUR NEIGHBORHOODS. We are petitioning for this tower application to be DENIED from being erected on RESIDENTIAL RUT Property, the first in our great City of Eagle.


SIGN THE PETITION AND JOIN THE 60+ HOMES WITHIN 1,000 FT OF IMPACT NOW!


SAVE THE DATE AND SHOW UP AT THE HEARING: NEW HEARING DATE/EXTENSION REQUESTED BY Powder River Development.  October 18th, 2018; 6pm in Commissioners Main Hearing Room #1235 (first floor), 200 W Front St, Boise, ID


1. Tell ADA COUNTY PLANNING & ZONING COMMITTEE TO DENY THE CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT required to erect this COMMERCIAL tower on RESIDENTIAL ZONED PROPERTY and to RESPECT AND PROTECT CITY OF EAGLE PROPERTY OWNERS INVESTMENTS, PRIVACY, QUALITY OF LIFE, SAFETY & HEALTH.


2. Tell POWDER RIVER DEVELOPMENT, LLC of Eagle, in conjunction with HORIZON TOWER, LLC of California on behalf of VERIZON, to MOVE THE TOWER TO A NON-RESIDENTIAL AREA,  and hold them accountable for DECEIVING & MISLEADING OUR RESIDENTS with the following information:

· Homes within 1,000ft of the proposed site may or may not have received notification of the community meeting in May via mail.

· We are finding these notification(s) provided conflicting information on date, time and place.

· Most have not been concerned, and did not attend the community meeting simply based on the outdated (6+ years) satellite map that was sent out in notification, showing minimal homes in the area.  This map went a step further to add to our confusion by cropping out Beacon Light just above the image, or any main road/cross streets for that matter to help in determining location.  Most of us, upon looking at that map had no idea where this area was. The most current satellite map from 2017 of exact areas shows a much different picture with thriving developments, and a TRUE picture of the impact of erecting a cell tower will cause.  REFERENCE ABOVE IMAGES.

· Original community meeting notice state multiple discrepancies leading people to a meeting at a wrong location on wrong days based on the following:

     1.  "Held Monday May 16th"...the 16th is on a Wednesday.

     2.  "at Meridian District Library located at 100 Stierman Way Eagle"...this is Eagle Public Library.

Many briefly scanned the document and went to Meridian Library on Monday night to no meeting.


· Document Discrepancies: Several documents state heights ranging from 65’-100’. Site placement markers have been moved on the property, however geo coordinates do not match newest location (red arrow).

 

3.  Tell  the TAYLOR FAMILY, OWNERS OF 2557 N. SKY VIEW LANE, EAGLE, ID that  moving to our beautiful state and misusing their residential property  for business and financial gain at the expense of the City of Eagle, ID  residents is not OK!  

· THE PROPERTY OWNERS DO NOT LIVE ON PROPERTY WHICH IS ZONED ADA COUNTY, NOT CITY OF EAGLE. 

·  THE PROPERTY OWNERS DISCREETLY SIGNED A LEASE WITH VERIZON IN DECEMBER  2017 FOR A MONTHLY LEASE PAYOUT. WE WERE NOT INFORMED UNTIL MAY, NOR  CONSIDERED IN THEIR GREEDY DECISION.

· THE PROPOSED TOWER MARKER IS LITERALLY PLACED APPROXIMATELY 20 STEPS FROM THE CLOSEST PROPERTY LINE, AND 80 STEPS FROM NEAREST HOMES! THIS DOES NOT ACCOUNT FOR THE 50x50 FOOT ENCLOSURE PLACED WITHIN STEPS OF OUR PROPERTY LINES!


We are not overstating the issues below. All information is readily available online and quite telling.


1. BE READY FOR A DECREASE IN YOUR PROPERTY VALUE! You will be required to disclose this tower on any and all home/property sale transactions. Homeowners all over the country with towers being erected near their homes are dealing with value losses up to 20% or more!    

There is no question that installation of this facility at this site will impact property values in the adjacent and surrounding neighborhoods.  Because of the intense and on-going controversy surrounding such sites and the stigmas attached thereto, it will be increasingly more difficult for sellers to maintain their current level of pricing in the area.  Wireless cellular towers and base stations are listed in the “50 Environmental Hazards to Avoid When Buying, Selling or Maintaining a Home" (The Home Environmental Source Book).  And the locations of this tower facility must be disclosed to potential buyers just as with any other potential hazard in the area or they can be sued.


2. Additionally, the ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT in our rural area includes disruption to animal and bird migration patterns, and loss of habitat. 


3. Apart from, and in addition to the unknown health and environmental concerns, cell towers become EYESORES (even when falsely made to look like trees). Unfortunately, this one will stand alone in a property of weeds, enclosed by a 50x50 fence with no chance of blending in. 


4. NOISE NUISANCE from AC units & generators, INVASION of PRIVACY as workers will have clear shots into windows of homes and yards.


5. Last but definitely not least are the ample disturbing publications in recent research by top world renowned scientists and doctors over the UNKNOWN HEALTH RISKS of long-term effects of exposure to cell towers which emit high-frequency radio waves, or microwaves. Safe distance from these towers is .25 miles. YOU are INSIDE of the .25 mile unsafe area! The closer you are, the greater the danger. The microwaves from cell phone towers have been shown to interfere with your body’s own EMFs, causing a variety of potential health problems, including Headaches, Memory loss, Cardiovascular stress, Low sperm count, Birth defects, and Cancer.
