A cell tower every mile and a half in a residential zone??

Here's an exchange from the third hearing between a Zoning Board member (Mr. Lomangino) and T-Mobile's radiofrequency engineer (Mr. Alcon)

"MR. LOMANGINO: So I don't understand, if you are having this problem within a mile or mile and a half of each other, of your solving one problem but causing yourself another problem, are these cell towers going to be popping up every three miles exactly?
MR. ALCON: Yes, sir.
MR. LOMANGINO: Is that where we are headed?
MR. ALCON: As I stated in the last hearing, they are approximately between a mile and a mile and a half in distance, yes, sir."

Placement of even a single commercial cell tower in a residential zone of our Township will set irreversible legal precedents in our town.

Such placement will mandate that all other carriers be granted equal access if they want to apply for similar cell tower placements within the Community.
