Antenna Farm Capable of
Spraying 530,000+ Watts
of Effective Radiated Power — 24/7/365 . . .
16 Macro Cell Tower Antennas that are
just 75-100 feet from homes!

Sign This Petition — Stop the Wireless Antenna Farm at the Petaluma Creamery
The proposed installation, 16 antennas capable of outputting more than 530,000 watts of Effective Radiated Power (ERP), atop the Petaluma Creamery, will have negative impacts for all residents. There are tens of thousands of peer-reviewed scientific studies, established science, that concludes there are significant negative health consequences from pulsed, data-modulated, Radio-frequency Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation (RF-EMR) exposures to humans, animals, insects and plants. There is evidence of many cancer clusters that have developed after cell towers and small cell facilities have been implemented near or atop places where people live and work. See the results of ten years of RF-EMR exposure from this cell tower in Sebastopol, CA: → https://scientists4wiredtech.com/sebastopol/#death.
Petaluma residents are requesting that this Wireless Telecommunications Facility (WTF) not be installed in our residential neighborhood. We demand that Petaluma only approve new WTFs that are needed to close a proven significant gap in telecommunications coverage, as proven by an Industry-standard, Comprehensive RF and Microwave Signal Strength (CRAM-SS) Need Test for carrier-specific telecommunications frequencies.
This major league, extremely powerful Verizon/Complete Wireless Antenna Farm, will also negatively impact our property values. With such a WTF so close to our homes, it would make it difficult to rent or sell, and we would have to disclose this information to potential renters or buyers.
As residents in close proximity to this WTF, we will be bombarded with this RF-EMR (700-2360 MHz) in our homes — day and night. Denying our ability to choose the best broadband service without invasive RF-EMR exposures and to protect our loved ones is both wrong and un-American.
Let’s stop this ill-advised, major Wireless Telecommunications Facility now.
Our loved ones and neighbors are depending on us to protect their future.
We do not consent to the placement, construction or operation of the 16-antenna WTF Antenna Farm at the Petaluma Creamery.

What About the Change.org petition?
- Link to Stop the MAJOR Telecommunication Facility at the Petaluma Creamery
- This petition was posted on June 17, 2020 by Kelly Barbaro
- One month later, the petition has nearly 5,000 signatures
The listed decision-makers are mostly incorrect:
- Teresa Barrett, Mayor of Petaluma (yes, she is one decision-maker)
- Heather Hines, m-group employee
- Brittany Bendix, m-group employee
- Justin Shiu, m-group employee
- The actual decision-makers are our Petaluma elected/appointed local officials, so Teresa Barrett will be a decision-make of the future appeal of the Planning Commission decision (an appeal is very likely)
- The listed -mgroup employees are not decision-makers. They are contract planners for the City of Petaluma and report to the City Manager, who is responsible and accountable for the quality of the work performed by these contractors.
- m-group employees are significant filters and influencers of the process because they are in charge of writing the staff report and compiling the Planning Commission and City Council packets that prepare our elected/appointed officials for their deliberations.
- The packets should reflect the substantial written evidence about this project that was placed in the Cikty of Petaluma public record by any stakeholder. We have to work hard to ensure that all substantial written evidence gets included in that all-important packet. As of July 17, 2020 we have about two weeks left to complete our critically important work to marshall substantial written evidence into the packet. Let’s not leave this important work to the end.
A. Those deciding on Aug 11, 2020 will be the City Council-appointed Petaluma Planning Commissioners
- Scott Alonso, Planning Commissioner
- Heidi Bauer, Planning Commissioner
- Blake Hooper, Planning Commissioner
- Richard Marzo, Planning Commissioner
- Sandi Potter, Planning Commissioner
- Patrick Streeter, Planning Commissioner
Those deciding on a future date tbd (and possibly by Sept 1, 2020) will be the elected Petaluma City Council members . . . because the party not agreeing with the Planning Commission vote will appeal the decision to the City Council
- Teresa Barrett, Mayor
- D’Lynda Fischer, Vice Mayor
- Mike Healy, Council Member
- Gabe Kearney, Council Member
- Dave King, , Council Member
- Kevin McDonnell, Council Member
