Parklawn Recreation Association Votes for Cell Tower

The Parklawn Recreation Association Board voted to continue to work with AT&T to put a 140' cell phone tower and it's equipment in two locations on either side of the driveway down to the pool.  The installation of the tower will necessitate the removal of a great deal of older trees (some approaching 100 years old) and destroy the natural canopy of trees that Fairfax County is fighting to preserve.  It will also pose possible health risks to the community and its children and reduce property values due to the unsighliness of the tower itself.
