I would like to submit this letter to The Citizen for consideration of publication about the issue of the rezoning for the cell tower at the entrance of Kedron Village at Peachtree City Christian Church.
This is a totally unacceptable location for a cell tower from reasons of safety, aesthetics, and home values. There is a day care, Oxford Trails Academy, that will be within 300 feet of this tower. These children will be playing outside and spending many hours near this tower.
No one can say how this will affect them now or down the road. These towers have no business being that close to any type of day care or school. The parents that send their children to this facility need to be warned of this situation. I would not want my child that close to a cell tower.
Peachtree City prides itself on ordinances and aesthetics, which is why so many people wish to live here. This tower will be an extreme eyesore.
Yes, they claim to make it look like a tree, but the entrance to a neighborhood called Honeysuckle Ridge is right across the street. The entrance to this neighborhood will face the base which will have fencing and concrete and metal that will NOT look like a tree.
This tower will be the entrance to Kedron Village from Ga. Highway 74, this is not how the village concept was designed to be. When one wants to sell their home in the future, how will this cell tower affect home values? Would you want your home to be across the street from a cell tower?
I understand the temptation of money that the church would receive for the tower being on their lot, but Peachtree Christian Church is not considering what this tower will do to the surrounding area, homes, and children. This tower location is way too close for comfort.
The rezoning meetings are Aug. 14 and Sept. 7. Please show your support for the opposition to this tower. There is a website created called keepkedronbeautiful.com.
