Hey Verizon, hold the phone!
STOP BULLYING WEXFORD COUNTY!
Verizon's Federal Lawsuit against Wexford County
The facts are these:
Verizon Wireless Communications wants to build several MORE 300-foot wireless cellular towers in Selma and Colfax Townships, Wexford County, Michigan. BUT, the proposed new sites are:
In direct violation of numerous zoning ordinances
Violating safety set-backs from homes and other property
Located in areas zoned agricultural/residential, NOT commercial
Situated where residents report Verizon and other cell phone service is accessible
What’s more, Verizon is electing to erect these cellular towers instead of using an existing tower already standing in close proximity that is available from AT&T. So, Verizon is choosing to:
Violate local zoning ordinances
Detract from the rural character of the area
Ruin what is currently a pristine night sky
Irreversibly make a negative impact on the wetlands of nearby Meauwataka Lake
So, in July, the Wexford County Zoning Board of Appeals requested that Verizon consider alternate locations to include Federal and State-owned land. But Verizon is giving us a "busy signal"...
Verizon has chosen to ignore the Zoning Board’s request and has sued Wexford County in Federal court. Now we need your help!
