New Resources at Last Tree Laws
Funding is a problem for LTL website - could definitely use extra help to keep site going. Keeping a website up has costs and the money isn't there. Please consider donating once or monthly, especially considering all the useful research and work provided on this site, including the legislation put forward by Kirstin.
Also, have you called your town to find out where applications are stored, gone in and taken PICTURES of applications? Copies cost money, but you are allowed to see for free, so . . . You can find out if an application has had an environmental review conducted. If not, the application is incomplete. You can delay the application by telling your town and telling them to get and environmental review, as per a recent court decision (see previous post). Even if the company 's environmental review is a farce, you can submit your own environmental review to contest the company's points and demand that the town consider your points - more on that later, for now just do this! See wireless opposition for a list of ideas, and also include the letter on our risks in your submission to the town.
Kirstin Beatty, director of Last Tree Laws, discovered some months ago that Verizon, the utility not mobile company, is installing small cell towers without permission of towns but behind the scenes. Please be kind enough to credit Kirstin of Last Tree Laws if you share this information. These installations would then be illegal, and an application would be required while, in the interim, the facilities would be shut down. Try contacting your gas and electric company to see if any have been installed on the utility poles. Understand that Verizon owns many of the poles in the Northeast.
