Watch this video from the Wed Aug 22 Napa Workshop on Planned CPMRA-WTFs for Napa Residential Zones

All City Council Meetings are held at 955 School Street, Napa, CA 94559 in the City Council Chambers.

Napa City Council Meetings

  • Regular Meeting - Tue Aug 21 at 3:30 pm

  • At the request of the City Council, the City of Napa hosted a Napa Community Workshop to allow the opportunity for residents to presnt information and ask questions about Close Proximity Microwave Radiation Antenna - Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (CPMRA-WTFs), aka so-called "Small Cells" proposed to be installed at 53 locations throughout Napa. Mayor Jill Techel and Councilmember Scott Sedgley were in attendance and will help guide the conversation. The Wireless companies had representatives on-hand to provide information. See the video, above.

Tell the Napa City Council:

  1. NO! Not in Napa's Residential Zones!
  2. Why? There is No proven SIGNIFICANT GAP in Verizon coverage in Napa and
  3. Close Proximity Microwave Radiation Antennas (CPMRA) 15–50 feet from our homes ARE NOT the least intrusive means to close an alleged significant gap in Verizon coverage.

The RF Microwave Radiation Assault of Napa, CA

  • Each CPMRA installation will decrease the property value of the four closest homes by 25% or more!
  • Each installation could destroy between $500,000 and $750,000 of residential property value, which is $30 million to $45 million in lost residential property value for a 60 cell-tower project.
  • Napa should not destroy this much private property value to appease the business interests of Verizon Wireless.
  • Napa, therefore, MUST cancel this misguided project, start a public process and consider the LEAST INTRUSIVE means to close any alleged significant gaps in Verizon coverage.
  • Are any of these 60-75 planned Close Proximity Microwave Radiation Antennas near your home? View below.
  • Are you relieved that one of these Phase One CPMRA installations is not in front of your home? Think again . . . if you let even one of these CPMRA installations in your neighborhood, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint are coming to claim the remaining poles, so your house will be next. CPMRAs are a cancer in your neighborhood that will grow in number, volume and power — year-after-year . . . unless you convince the Napa City Council to do the smart thing and allow CPMRA/Cell Towers only in commercial and industrial zones.

This is How You Do It . . . Strength in Numbers

Attorney Patrick Shannon, founder of Hillsborough Families Against Cell Towers addressing his City Council regarding 16 proposed cell towers by Verizon/Crown Castle: "Do the right thing, protect your residents and avoid our City from becoming the place where democracy goes to die and cell towers metastasize."

The Problem: 60+ Cell Towers in Napa's Residential Zones, 15–50 feet from Homes

Mark Graham:
You may know that Sacramento has already gone down this road and made this mistake and I read something today from a couple that owns a house in Sacramento. What they said was . . .

"I could not in good consience sell my house to a couple that wanted to conceive or raise children."

That's because of the electromagnetic radiation hazard that was right out in front of their house. If you just go ahead with this and give Verizon carte blanche, you'll put your residents in that situation.

My understanding is that Napa was one of 325 cities that opposed SB.649 last year. I don't know how much you know the history of this bill. It was supported by Verizon, AT&T and their lobbying group and widely opposed from the people who spoke up from the consumer, health impact and power of cities points of view.

What Verizon was not able to take from the cities by force — through the legislature — they figured, well we will just try get what we want by the City's agreement with us, one-on-one. The agreement you have with Verizon sounds to me like a city-wide version of SB.649. What Verizon could not take by force, they are trying to get by agreement. Don't let them do it.

"Preserve and promote the unique quality of life that is Napa" — right up there behind you. Does that not say . . . ? [Crowd Applause] That's the answer [pointing to the crowd] I can's say it any better than what they just said.

What We Know: This Is Not Good

The World Health Organization has classified radio frequency microwave electromagnetic fields from any source (pulsed, data-modulated, Radiofrequency Microwave Radiation radiation) as a Group 2B Carcinogen. Dr. Lennart Hardell, a member of the IARC committee wrote in his 3/12/18 comments on the National Toxicology Program final results:

Based on the IARC preamble to the monographs, RF microwave radiation should be classified as Group 1: The agent is carcinogenic to humans.

"This category is used when there is sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity in humans. Exceptionally, an agent may be placed in this category when evidence of carcinogenicity in humans is less than sufficient but there is sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental animals and strong evidence in exposed humans that the agent acts through a relevant mechanism of carcinogenicity." (

These so-called “Small Cell” towers would be installed just 15-50 feet from homes and transmit hazardous levels of pulsed, data-modulated, radio frequency microwave-millimeter wave radiation 24/7/365 — with no chance to opt out. Recall, that people damaged by 24/7/365 exposures from the Wireless Advanced Metering Infrastructure's (AMI) so-called "Smart Meters" forced PG&E to offer an opt out program. We need such an opt out for these CPRMA installations, as well: My Street, My Choice!

The Solution: Fiber to the Premises (FTTP)

The solution is both simple and easy — instead of more Wireless, install Wireline fiber optic cables to each home and business in Napa, which will provide much faster, more secure, more reliable and much more energy-efficient transmission of Internet and video data. Doing so would preserve the unique character of Napa and prevent the private Telecom companies from shoving these these cheap, ugly, intrusive, microwave-radiation-emitting CPMRA installations into our town.

Despite the promises of additional convenience and the unbridled hype for 5G and the "Internet of Things” (IoT), the primary duty of our elected officials is neither convenience, nor promised future economic growth, but to promote and preserve the health and welfare of the Town of Napa's residents, voters and taxpayers.

What you Can Do

To voice your opposition to Cell Towers being installed 10 to 50 feet from homes and local workplaces, please come to the Napa City Council Meetings and speak or support others who will speak against these hazardous, visual blights that could blemish our beautiful city for the rest of our lives.
