To all neighbors to Pioneer Valley High School, especially older citizens, many with health problems, we have received letters stating Verizon Wireless desires to install a diesel emergency generator on the grounds of Pioneer Valley High.
They allege this would not create a significant toxic risk to public health. Anything that contaminates the good, clean air we breathe is certainly not a health benefit.
This is asking a sacrifice of all those affected by air contamination and noise of a diesel engine.
Why can’t this be located elsewhere, away from residential areas? This is in no way a benefit to any of us.
