We are not against cell towers in general and like everyone else, we would like better cell coverage in Palos Verdes. We are against ugly, highly intrusive cell towers planted in the heart of every neighborhood in our community. We will not tolerate the cheapest, crappiest “solution” the cell tower installers think they can get away with. This is our community and we expect them to respect it.
There is no question placing a commercial telecommunication facility next to a home lowers its property value. Residential neighborhood locations must be the last resort and then only when a site is required to prevent an effective prohibition of service. If that’s not demonstrated to be the case, using objective evidence and defensible service level requirements, then the cell tower installers must look elsewhere.
These requests are reasonable, and even those trying to justify these sites would likely feel the same way if this was happening in their neighborhood.
No Ugly Palos Verdes Cell Towers was started by a concerned group of Palos Verdes Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes residents. We are tired of seeing these eyesores pop up like mushrooms. Cities on the Hill have the power to deny sites that violate the aesthetic regulations of our cities. If you agree please let us know, we could use your help!
