The Deschutes Neighborhood Group is pleased to announce the Thurston County Hearing Examiner has set Monday, March 7 for the Appeal Hearing in order to accommodate the Appellants, which was agreed to as the date upon which the greatest number of necessary parties could be present.
The group appealed a Determination of Non-significance (DNS) that would permit the construction of a proposed Verizon cell tower on the former sheep farm at 16224 Vail Road SE, Yelm.

The public is invited to help by signing an Affidavit and/or Declaration.

The affidavits and declarations that will be provided will cover the following topics:

1. Decline in Property Values by the proposed cell tower in the Lake Lawrence area
2. Mt. Rainier view ruined by proposed cell tower
3. Personal knowledge that you already have wireless cell coverage in the Lake Lawrence area
4. Adverse health effects of cell towers
5. Balloon test notification & lack of public meeting
6. Lake Lawrence letter saying the club wants the tower, yet many in Lake Lawrence were not polled
7. A statement that simply says: states I do not want the cell tower with no further explanation/reason

From the Deschutes Neighborhood Group:
“We are a group of individuals in rural Thurston County, Washington State who have come together to protect our local environment and ourselves, so that we may all enjoy the full measure of our unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Our current focus is to prevent a cell tower construction in our rural/residential area, which would radiate 24/7 harmful microwave radiation to all of life.”

– Editor’s Note:
That the Thurston County Hearing Examiner has agreed to an Appeal Hearing is a huge accomplishment for this group, who requested rescinding the DNS (denying Verizon a special use permit) and a refund of the appeal fee and compensation for their work in this appeal.
