  1. Sprint pays hundreds and thousands of dollars a year to the owner of the land that this property is up, as long as there are no health issues and the taxpayer gets a nice piece of the pie , we should nt have an issue with this

  2. If Lakewood residents want to use their cell phones they must realize that they can not object to the erection of the infrastructure necessary to support that desire.

  3. Please explain your objections to the towers. Are they religious reasons, aesthetic reasons, health related reasons and so on.

  4. This tower will be located near the mvc (motor vehicle commission) that means that whenever i need to go there i will be exposed to cellular radiation. Furthermore, the employees at the mvc will be constantly exposed, and the line will get longer if they suffer from radiation. And there are many schools that are located on Oak Street and in the industrial park. We must fight this travesty. And fight the filthy cell phone companies who are profiting from blood money! How many children have they poisoned with the radiation and filth! Besides that those towers broadcast shmutz into our air! Are we not affected!!!! Cell phones are the scourge of humanity!!! The countless numbers of people who have experienced physical and spiritual demise sends chills up my spine. Al eyleh ani bokheya, al shever bat ami!
