Some Arch Beach Heights residents oppose the proposed installation of a communications installation they feel is too close to Moulton Meadows Park where their children play.
Three opponents of the project asked the City Council at the Nov. 16 meeting to intervene in the installation on a home at 1100 Balboa Ave. and one proposed a city limitation on locations near areas where children congregate.
"There is already at least one and maybe two in the home," said Charmaine Craig, a UC Riverside professor who said she was speaking for the residents of Arch Beach Heights.
Craig said she had not heard of any public hearing on the project and asked if the city isn't legally obligated to notify neighbors.
Telecommunications facilities require conditional-use permits and the installations on Balboa were reviewed by the Planning Commission in 2008. Neighbors were noticed, Director of Community Development John Montgomery told the council.
