FOIA Request Template For Presentation To A City Council, Zoning Board Or Local Authority Regarding 5G+ Technology Implementation

By Catherine J. Frompovich

The more technology consumers learn about the unknowns, specifically possible adverse health reactions to all the bombardment from super-sophisticated microwave technology, e.g., millimeter waves from 5G, the more concerns they have about living with thousands of small cell towers that will facilitate 5G technology, which is one thousand times faster than 4G, and about which we know nothing as to 4G adverse health effects.

Consumers are not bashful when they realize the downsides of 5G and, consequently, make a decision to prevent that network from being installed in their locale.  Therefore, those consumers may be looking for a “tool” that will help them get started in dealing with local government authorities who either promote 5G installations, or those who want to prevent 5G from being rolled out in their area.

Many cities have been successful in preventing 5G from ‘frying’ them.  See Some Northern California Cities Are Blocking Deployment of 5G Towers.

Below is a template FOIA Request a consumer used in her area to file a comprehensive 5G FOIA request. Correspondingly, concerned consumers can present it to proper local authorities to let them know “you mean business” about NO 5G in my back yard!


FOIA Request Template

This is a request for information per the Freedom of Information Act concerning the plans, if any, that you may have implemented concerning 5G Technology, the Smart Grid, replacement of telephone poles and LED lighting (see 1.11) and anything that may indicate you plan on facilitating [name your area] as a “smart city.”

1.1 Do you have a 5G strategy?

If yes, I request to see the complete strategy, its ambitions and its objectives in a Word, PDF or picture format.

1.2 If yes, has the council published or provided to the public the opportunity to read and understand the City Council’s plan as it concerns 5G Strategy; was the replacement telephone poles with LED lighting part of the 5G strategy; has the public been informed of the benefits and/or risks involved in installing it, and been given the opportunity for public input? Where was this information published, and if, where?

1.3 I also request any document that you have received from any source (such as, but not limited to FEDA, Federal government, State government, 5G network installers, etc.) including the highest level of detail on all 5G technology that’s planned to be used and/or currently in use (LED street lights 1.11) in public spaces within the city limits of [your area] including the following information:
