I am upset that I have heard NOTHING of the proposed tower until this evening from a concerned friend. I am in the Compton School district - within 1 mile of the school. I have a dr. appt. in Tn. tomorrow or I would attend the board meeting tomorrow to oppose the tower. Why weren't the residents of Powder Springs in this school district informed of the early meetings to voice opposition?? This has been a very low key procedure -- I know of others that would have voiced opposition had we known of this at an earlier date. Shame on the Cobb Board of Education and shame on them for selecting our area -- dont' guess they're proposing one for the "richer" parts of Cobb County. In addition, my yard is a certified "Wildlife Habitat" and these towers are a danger to the birds, owls, etc. in our area.

Wallace, several residents did turn out to tonight's meeting at 514 Glover St. The Mayor of Powder Springs was there to express our community's overwhelming outcry and suggested the proposal on the cell tower be "tabled". After hearing the residents of Powder Springs opposition and a few teachers who were in favor of the proposal, one of the newest members (Ms. Angelucci) suggested that the proposal be "tabled". After debating the proposal for several minutes amongst the board members, a vote of 6 to 1 was cast in favor of "tabling" the proposal. You are welcomed to join our opposition on this proposal. Email me at [email protected] for further information. Thanks for you concern and support. Concerned Residents of Powder Springs
