Activists have teamed up with attorney Mark Pollock to file a cease and desist against members of the council, in an attempt to prevent them from moving forward with any more applications for small cell facilities.
The notice from Pollock referenced the August 9, 2019 DC Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in case 18-1129 which vacated FCC Order 18-30‘s attempt to exempt small cell antennas from National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) review and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review. https://www.nrdc.org/court-battles/nrdc-v-federal-communications-commission
Will the City Council halt the deployment of small cell technology in Lake Tahoe or will they continue to install this dangerous and intrusive technology ignoring basic constitutional rights, environmental law, and the will of the people?
