MAY 2021 CALL TO ACTION
SBAR
Hearing: May 7, 2021

Please forward this email to your contacts, who are against unnecessary, overpowered cell towers. The more letters the Planning Department receives, the better. Thank you.

Dear Friends:

Regarding the 4/16 hearing, the Planning Dept released the agenda and there is no Crown Castle item on that agenda for this Friday, April 16th.  The meeting has been postponed until May.  May 7th is the new date and they are extending the shot clock. When we find out if this is for all 6 proposed cell tower sites including the one in Montecito we will let you know.You may now email your comments to Travis Seawards: tseawards@co.santa-barbara.ca.us  instead of or in addition to snail mailing them.
And it seems like you have extra time to write and send your comments, I’m assuming by May 5.

Please Help Stop the proposed Cell Tower at 2880 Ben Lomond Drive.

This is 26 feet from Alan Gallegos’ home with two small children, ages 9 and 11.

Your house could be next!


Attached is Alan’s letter with instructions on how to send written and email public comments to the Planning Department.
