VICTORY IN SOUTH CAROLINA: Request to Install Cell Tower on Playground Denied
On June 17th, Stop 5G Charleston successfully defeated the installation of a cell tower on Long Point Playground in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina.
For months, residents of the Long Point community battled the proposed cell tower on their neighborhood playground. Sixteen people spoke to the planning commission in opposition of the tower. Of the sixteen, two were attorneys, one a former Vice President of Sprint, a retired IT military director, and several health care workers.
This was a victory for the community of Long Point, for the residents of Mt. Pleasant, and for the residents of Charleston. If residents band together and make their voices heard, anything is possible.
