Email Dated January 29, 2016Dear Superintendent Brentnall and members of the Board of education.I was frankly somewhat surprised at the failure of anybody from the Hillsdale school system to be inattendance at the hearing last night regarding the proposed cell tower to be constructed on HillsdaleAvenue at the overpass of the Garden State Parkway. This 85 foot tower with a full array of AT&Tantennae is positioned approximately 100--150 ft. Away from the Smith school property and alsoaffects hundreds of neighbors in the community.If you will recall, five years ago, a similar tower was proposed on Overlook Terrace and the HillsdaleCounsel rejected the proposal because of serious health and medical concerns about radiationemanating from the tower.This new proposal is not on Hillsdale property but rather property owned by the State of New Jerseythrough the turnpike authority. From attending the meeting, the impression that the attendees got wasthat this is going to be railroaded through without any real regard to the desires of the health and safetyof the community.I urge you and the Board of Education and the parent teachers association to get involved in this for thesake of all of our school children. Our new mayor was in attendance and I believe you would learn agreat deal about the situation by contacting him at his office in town.Thank you for your consideration.Alan Robinson95 Horizon TerraceHillsdale
