Petition to the Board of Supervisors of New Garden Township regarding proposed Conditional Use Application of Eco-Site, LLC for a communications tower on PROPERTY at 1511 Yeatmans Station Road
We the undersigned, being residents and taxpayers of New Garden Township and London Britain Township, oppose the construction of a communications tower on a property owned by Anthony J. and Renee L. Santoro located at 1511 Yeatmans Station Road.
We recognize that the White Clay Creek Preserve, part of the park system of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, is a pristine natural resource possessing outstanding scenic, wildlife, recreational and cultural value; and further recognize that the White Clay Creek flows through the Preserve and, because of the Creek’s exceptional value, has been designated by the United States Congress as a National Wild and Scenic River.
Our federal and state tax dollars have contributed to the preservation of the Preserve and New Garden and London Britain Townships have supported the Preserve and its natural and scenic resources. We utilize the Preserve for the recreational, scenic and natural resource opportunities it provides.
We strongly believe that the location of a communications tower on the property at 1511 Yeatmans Station Road adjacent to the Preserve and close to residential properties in both Townships, whether or not obscured by stealth technology, will have a negative effect on the view to and from the Preserve and other nearby properties; will have a negative impact on scenic, natural, recreational and cultural resources; will be contrary to the open space and preservation purposes fostered by the Preserve and the Townships; and will have a negative effect on the value of residential properties in both Townships.
Therefore, we urge the Board of Supervisors of New Garden Township to deny the request of Eco-Site, LLC for conditional use approval of the proposed communications tower.
