As you all know by now, Verizon has filed permits to place 5G towers in locations within our community.
The HOA Board of Directors has met to discuss the best path forward on addressing this situation. Most board members have been sought out regarding concerns over the 5G poles. We hear your concerns and questions and are acting in the best interest of our community.
To date, we have filed a continuance with the City of Indianapolis and Verizon to delay the initial zoning variance hearing so that we have adequate time to prepare the best approach in representing our HOA. With all of this being said, currently we are only speaking of Verizon, which is on the current radar. With multiple technology companies on the horizon, we know this will not be the only company that will be presenting this technology. We know they are just the first company to arrive in Southcreek.
Upon our research, what we have found is other communities have fought this and have had limited success in stopping installation. We know that the technology is likely going to be beneficial, and where we can add value to the situation is by giving guidance and direction on placement and aesthetics of these poles needed for the technology. We intend to take a proactive approach to work with the companies, rather than against.
When the hearing occurs, we intend to have one of our board members represent our community based on the research we have done in talking with representatives of the city and from technology providers who are well versed in these situations. We would strongly encourage as many homeowners as possible to attend the hearing to show unity.
The Southcreek HOA BOD is looking out for the best interest of our community, and after a lengthy discussion, this is the path that we all believe is best to follow.
