The town of Longmeadow MA is in the process of looking at restricting
 where cell phone towers can be erected within their town.  Could this
 effect amateur towers in this town?  Could Longmeadow's decision set a
 precident that could affect hams in many other communities?  I don't
 know much about the story, just that they are looking at restricting
 "towers" in the town to certian areas, e.g. commercial zoned land or
 city property.
 What do people think, should we be concerned?  I think it's worth
 looking at.

 I do not live in the town of Longmeadow, but I do live in Mass, and   
 what concerns me is that this could set a precident, or a wave of other 
 similar restrictions that could cause headaches for hams.  How do I go 
 about informing the town/committee of the existing laws concerning 
 amateur radio towers in this state and federally?
