Lakewood : Cellular Phone Company Will Remove Local Tower

June 17, 1993

Residents who said they feared radiation and electromagnetic waves from a new cellular telephone tower in their neighborhood have won a battle to get the tower removed.

Los Angeles Cellular Telephone Company erected the 60-foot transmission pole in May with the consent of the Lakewood Planning Commission. But after the gray tower went up at Paramount and Del Amo boulevards, neighbors complained, saying they had not been notified of the company's plans.

After repeated protests by residents, L.A. Cellular decided last week to move the tower, officials said during a City Council meeting. Although the company has not found an alternative site, it plans to move the pole within a year, officials said.
