Hermosa, Bataan—Village residents here have petitioned against the construction of a cell site tower in Purok 3, Barangay Balsik, this town.
Daisy Enriquez, leader of complaining residents, said they have already submitted the petition to the Department of Interior Local Government Region 3 and the Sangguniang Bayan.
She said 88 Balsik residents signed the petition.
“There was no consultation done among village residents for the project. This project has impact to our lives, we should have consulted,” Enriquez said.
“There will be devaluation of our properties once the facility is constructed, and there are also some health concerns,” she said.
“Our position is for the company to build their cell site tower at other parts of Hermosa or somewhere else,” Enriquez said.
The facility site is a residential area and the required cell site tower distance to residence is not being followed, the residents asserted in their petition.
