Cell tower concerns the parents at St. Andrew's

Parents of students attending St. Andrew's Episcopal School have expressed their concerns about St. Andrew's Episcopal Church's plan to allow T-Mobile to construct a cell phone tower in a church steeple. And school and church administrators have listened. A lawyer has been hired by St. Andrew's to "reach out to T-Mobile" in hopes of terminating the contract the church signed with the telecommunications company last year. "I always want to pay close attention to the feelings of the community," said Harry McKay, head of schools at St. Andrew's. "This is a tight parent community, and they felt there was cause for concern. So we have reached out to T-Mobile to see if we can reconsider this contract," McKay said. Although the issue is the cell tower, parents say another problem was the lack of communication from school administrators. "It's been a sequence of unfortunate events," said Sue Garner, a Monte Sereno City Council member who has a child at the school. T-Mobile approached the church in May 2009 with the idea to construct a tower on the Saratoga Avenue property, said McKay. The church would receive ongoing payment from T-Mobile for the use of the site. McKay declined to state how much the church would receive. The project was reviewed in June 2009 by a Joint Masters Facilities Committee, which a letter to parents states was "comprised of an equal number of church and school representatives and includes members with expertise in construction and construction contracts." The commission reviewed reports and opinions from a variety of sources, McKay said. They included information from the Federal Communications Commission, the American Cancer Society and the World Health Organization. McKay said the commission was comfortable with the information provided by the groups. "Some people have expressed concern that living, working or going to school near a cell phone tower might increase the risk of cancer or other health problems. At this time, there is very little evidence to support this idea," the ACS reports on its website. McKay also pointed to a recent study published on the British Medical Journal website that looked at 1,397 cases of childhood cancer in the United Kingdom between 1999 and 2001. The report concluded that "there is no association between risk of early childhood cancers and estimates of the mother's exposure to mobile phone base stations during pregnancy." However, the World Health Organization states on its website that more studies are needed. Parents agree and say there is no definitive research that proves there are no negative health impacts from the towers. Garner said parents would have expressed their opinions at a February Saratoga Planning Commission meeting if they had known about it. The planning commission unanimously gave design approval for the project at a Feb. 10 public meeting. The approved project includes a "wireless telecommunications facility" that has eight antennas that will be located in the steeple. Other equipment would be located behind the church and screened by a 6-foot-high fence, a planning commission report states. Four Saratogans, all associated with the church, spoke on the project and asked that the commission give its approval. Garner said parents had recently expressed their reservations about the project to school and church representatives. "I think it's a great school," Garner said. "The parents are committed to helping the school find the right solution."
