California Community Confronts Crown Castle
Residents in La Jolla, California, blocked a crew from Crown Castle who were on site to install a wireless antenna on Monday. The tower company was replacing a light pole with a cell tower near David Haney’s property when residents parked their cars to block the work site and stood together to protest the project. Haney told KSWB-TV that he had been fighting the tower since 2014 when he first contacted city councilwoman Sherri Lightner. Lightner told Haney that Crown Castle would have to go before the city council before anything progressed, but Haney and other neighbors had previously been told that Crown Castle already had an agreement in place with the city.
