PLEASE TAKE 5 MINUTES TO SAVE LIVES AND PROPERTY IN SANTA FE -In the US, every year 12 cell towers fall and 4 cell towers erupt into flames -Who will pay for the damages? This new Code also targets rural NM, forcing industrial use in our rural residential communities. 100% of all acequia lands are targeted for “mixed use” like strip malls and industry. This is NOT our tradition or why we choose to live in Northern New Mexico.
Residents WIN--CELL TOWER STOPPED! Residents of that neighborhood claimed the tower would only be 500 feet from an elementary school and a little more than a thousand feet from a middle school....A grass-roots group of parents, property owners and neighbors have appealed to the city to block the tower....They also said the tower would lower property values....."Just wanted to let you know that we SUCCEEDED in our battle against T-Mobile, there will NOT be a T-Mobile tower installed on the Little White Chapel across the street and so close to schools!!!! We are all so happy and frankly surprised - the City Council kept telling us their hands were tied in this issue. We had close to 200 people show up at the appeal meeting and we had ABC and NBC news cameras show up – we had a lot of great community support which I think helped."
The decision was met with applause from the residents in attendance, who came out strongly against the application with a variety of concerns. Chief among those concerns was the impact a 130-foot cell phone tower would have on the aesthetics and overall character of the surrounding neighborhoods.
