May 27, 2020
Dear Mayor Ly, Council Members and staff,
My name is ____________________ and I live in Elk Grove.
The City has never notified the residents of Modena Way* that AT&T has applied for a permit (19-07227) to install a powerful cell antenna at Monterey Trail High School, 8661 Power Inn Road.
I support the residents of Modena Way, who have asked the City to:
- Make certain documents and information related to the AT&T cell antenna application, the law and the City’s options available on the City’s website;
- Have a conference call meeting with the Modena Way residents and answer their questions;
- Deny the application for the permit because there is no significant gap in coverage and the proposed antenna is not the least intrusive means; and
- Put on the agenda of a City Council meeting the specific proposed changes to the municipal code that the Modena Way residents asked for in their petition.
The City should understand and exercise its authority to protect its interests and residents’ interests in the cell antenna permitting process. The City can do all of these things.
[Your name and address]
* Or residents living near any of the other 4 sites on 19-07227
