Neighborhood Walk with Verizon Wireless Rep. Danna Diamond.

Meet at 712 E. 4th Avenue.   


* We will be looking for other metal light poles in the Commercial areas as substitutes for the current 2 wooden PG & E poles being proposed in our neighborhood.   


* The 712 E. 4th Avenue location has been denied by Public Works and Verizon is appealing the denial.   803 - 9th Avenue has a conditional permit.  


* We are concerned with these small cell antennas being attached to the PG & E wooden poles in the public right of way in the front of homes, private backyards and private alleys in the residential neighborhoods.  


* When you receive a 500 ft notice in the mail from the cellular company, request a Neighborhood Meeting to Tracy Scramaglia in Public Works - ‭522-7316‬ - so the surrounding residents can understand the adverse impacts to the neighborhood.  The cellular company will bring a mock-up antenna to the meeting. 


* There are issues with the aesthetics of the exterior wires and radios on wooden PG & E poles, and the RF emissions for children and seniors at the second story living areas of residential homes. 


* Additional small cell antennas are allowed on the same wooden pole once the first antenna gets approved which adds to the cumulative RF emissions impacts. 


* Metal street light poles in commercial locations are the preferred site and the wooden PG & E poles in residential neighborhoods are least preferred sites.


* See small cell infrastructure https://www.cityofsanmateo.org/3865/Small-Cell-Infrastructure and review the Engineering and Design Guidelines.
