The Menlo Park Planning Commission approved T-Mobile's request to mount a cellphone antenna inside a flag pole at 2400 Sand Hill Road on Feb. 7, a process which will be repeated at least five more times during the upcoming year.
T-Mobile spokesman Rod De La Rosa confirmed that the telecommunications company plans to add six towers to Menlo Park. Other proposed locations include Nealon Park and Seminary Oaks Park.
Some residents criticized the way T-Mobile has publicized community outreach meetings held to discuss the towers. Mr. De La Rosa said notices are mailed to addresses within 500 feet of each site two weeks in advance of the meetings.
