UTILITY PERMITS MAP OF SANDY SPRINGS The position of Stop5GSandySprings.com, based on the D.C. Circuit Court's decision in EHT v FCC, is that 5G permits should not be issued unless and until the FCC complies with federal law, which requires a reasoned analysis and explanation regarding all of the public comments and scientific evidence that was submitted to the FCC regarding the non-thermal, non-cancerous, yet material and serious risks to the public's health and safety, that accompany 5G radiofrequency transmissions. In our opinion, permits for 5G small cell unit installations, which rely upon FCC authority, are invalid until the FCC complies with federal law.
We do support fiber optic cable to the home (not to the 5G small cell), which is as fast as 5G, yet is safe.
We suggest that you check this map on at least a weekly basis to see if a new permit has been issued for a 5G small cell near your address. You might not get any other warning.
Use the following information to check for 5G small cell permits issued in your area: 1. Go to the map for Sandy Springs. 2. Enter your address of interest in the upper left box, under "Utility Permits". 3. Find your address in the drop-down menu and click on it. 4. You will see your address as a black circle in a blue-green square on the map. 5. Use the "+" and "-" signs in the upper left corner to zoom in or out of the map. Do not click in the map area to zoom in or out, or to move the map; that user interface does not work well. 6. In the upper right corner of the page, click on the icon that looks like three diamonds on top of each other (to the left of the "i" in a circle icon). This is the Layer List. 7. In the Layer List, click on the boxes for Utility Permits Points (ALL) and Utility Permits Line (ALL). The Utility Permits Points will show the 5G small cell locations, represented by filled-in circles. The Utility Permits Line will show the fiber optic cable locations, represented by lines. (The color of the lines and circles depends on the vendor.) Other utilities will be displayed, such as for a gas or water line. If you are specifically looking for a 5G small cell, you might want to uncheck the Utility Permits Line (ALL) for easier viewing. Note, however, that some 5G small cells need to be connected to fiber optic cable, so checking both Utility Permits Points (ALL) and Utility Permits Line (ALL) will give you a more complete picture. Also, if you want to see only issued 5G permits, do not check Utility Permits Points (ALL). 8. Click on the fiber optic cable line or 5G small cell circle of interest on the map, to see a pop-up window showing a summary of information about the permit, including vendor name and permit number. 9. To see detailed information about the permit, scroll down to the bottom of the pop-up window and click on "Permit Details." If the permit has expired or is on hold, then there will be no detail information displayed. If the permit is not expired or on hold, then you will go to another page with information including the address, applied date and issued date. 10. For an even deeper dive into the details, click on the permit number highlighted in yellow. The percent completed shown in the Progress wheel (lower left corner) may or may not be accurate.
