Absolutely.
Aside from your rights, under state law, to be heard at public hearings,
you also have a right to submit opposition to Cell Tower applications, under the 1st Amendment to the United States Constitution, which guarantees your right
to petition government for the redress of grievances.

Under this guarantee, you have a U.S. Constitutional right to be heard before town boards, planning boards and zoning boards, and to make submissions
to oppose any Cell Tower application pending before any such local boards.

In exercising such state and federal rights, you have the right to fight against sustaining a loss to the value of your property as a result of the installation of
a Cell Tower in close proximity your property.

You can exercise these rights to protect yourself, your family, friends and neighbors against against the dangers of Cell Tower collapse, and to fight
against having the installation of a Cell Tower which would adversely effect
the character or aesthetics of your neighborhood.

You have the right to assert all factual grounds upon which a respective application should be denied, and all legal grounds upon which a respective
Cell Tower application should be denied, or in some cases, must be denied
as a matter of law.
To exercise such rights, of course, you will need to recognize both the factual and legal grounds upon which to challenge a Cell Tower application, and the manner in which to assert such challenges.

Where such rights have been exercised effectively, individuals and civic associations have defeated carriers' efforts to install one or more Cell Towers near their respective homes or business.

They have even forced a carrier to tear down a Cell Tower, despite the fact that construction of the Tower was already 75% complete, with its foundation installed to completion, and the first 50 feet
of the 100 foot tower already having been installed.
