AT&T proposes constructing cell tower near school

June 14, 2011

By Staff

King County is considering a proposal from AT&T to build a 150-foot tall cell tower on the Sammamish Plateau near Endeavour Elementary School.

The telecommunications company applied for a permit from the King County Department of Development and Environmental Services to build a tower for cellular antennae and a shelter for equipment at 26325 S.E. 39th St., about a mile northeast of the Klahanie Center shopping complex and less than a half-mile from the elementary school.

The county permitting agency is in the process of determining potential environmental impacts of the projects. Residents can send comments about the environmental impacts to DDES — Building and Fire Services Division, 900 Oakesdale Ave. S.W., Renton, WA 98057-5212. The public comment period ends June 30.

Residents can also review the applications and any environmental studies at the Renton office.

    No, no, and no!!! Cell towers are environmental hazards! Building it right next to the ELEMENTARY school???? These are your kids, your future. Why are some people so ignorant??

    Cell tower radiation is composed of powerful pulses of electromagnetic energy–so powerful that at close quarters they will thermally “cook” what is near them. Even at further distances these waves create an unending cacophony of jumbled pulses that disrupt the natural functioning of biological forms. Some people are highly sensitive to microwave radiation and must live and sleep in “Faraday” cages, which protect them from the onslaught of EMF. Others seem to build up a sensitivity over time as more and more towers pop up around them, surrounding them with a continuous rain of energy that is incompatible with the natural functioning of the brain, organs and even DNA replication.

Got something to say?
