Sample Letters: below are some ideas. But you can also just talk about the impact you expect to you and your family personally, especially related to the visual impact and property value. The most important things, though, are to be sure to submit a letter and also to attend, even you don't plan to speak.
Here are 3 sample letters. You can use them in whole, or use them for ideas. The most important thing, though, is to be sure to submit a letter!
Note that the Planning Commission cannot consider "health" concerns in making their decision about the Special Use Permit. (Yes; that's right. The 1996 Federal Telecommunications Act, driven by the cellular telephone industry, rigged the system in their favor and put the health of the country at risk.) However, that doesn't mean you can't voice your concern about it. Make your letter as personal as you like: share your concerns and how the cell tower will affect you and your family. Key things to consider--and that the planning commission may also consider--are: visual impact, property value impact, noise disruption, faulty/deficient application by Verizon. These web pages have information you can use to make your case.
