This is a possibility for my 'hood.

Health issues--i might be ok with those risks--that is being discussed.

We lag a bit behind---Ga Power and AT&T work on the power lines that are strung across the neighborhood. They seem to do a good job--we stay hooked up. Comcast--however they implemented their communication plan --seems to work well enough. The others must know what they are doing, too. I wouldn't know.

How big would it be---that is of great concern to me. I know where it would probably go---a school playground that is not currently in use. The dog people gather there--we wouldn't be pleased to have the playground transformed into a cell phone tower.

They could put it in the kudzu--get rid of that--snakes and bugs. I could support that.

whatcha think?

i believe i just read in the AJC that t-mobile is trying to work a deal to install towers at dekalb county school campuses. is that what you're referring to?


we have a few in valdosta that look like trees, or attempt to. they're not hideous, but its obvious its not a real tree. but it looks much better than a standard cell site.

yes---there is a school in the neighborhood--Special Needs--physically challenged, etc--they can't use the playground due to the steep steps--wheelchairs couldn't possibly go up and down--they have an outdoor area that works for them.

The playground is not used by the school--used by the neighborhood--a special amenity that we wouldn't like to lose.

It might look like this and could sit in the kudzu how many trees would be cut --a serious issue and then it wouldn't be as peaceful and serene--the dogs need that as well as the people. Lots of city noise comes from the interstates and airplanes on the way to Peachtree DeKalb--this has been an issue for some time. Emory area--citizens are concerned about environmental/health issues--i expect there to be a lot of discussion. I'd love to know more--missed the informational meetings--such is life.
