Berwyn Heights Elementary
Carrollton Elementary
Charles Carroll Middle
College Park Academy Dear CEO Maxwell:
Dora Kennedy French Immersion
Eleanor Roosevelt High I am writing to request that you reject the proposed cell tower at Eleanor Roosevelt
Greenbelt Elementary High School in no uncertain terms.
Greenbelt Middle
Hollywood Elementary The process followed by Milestone Communications has shown a lack of respect for
Junior Achievement Finance Park
Lamont Elementary community engagement and a complete dismissal of community concerns. The very
Magnolia Elementary location of one meeting showed a clear insensitivity to the communitys views.
Margaret Brent Regional Milestones decision to host a meeting outside of the high school and city of Greenbelt
Paint Branch Elementary limited local participation by design. There was no prior notification to me or the Board
Parkdale High of Education, which prohibited my own participation since the meeting was scheduled
Riverdale Elementary
the same night as a Board meeting. It was also brought to my attention that Milestone
Robert Frost Elementary
Springhill Lake Elementary did not respond to the Greenbelt City Council when its members sought a meeting to
Turning Point Academy Public Charter discuss their concerns.
William Wirt Middle School
Although the contract predates our tenure, this process has not met our standards for
transparency, open communication and meaningful stakeholder engagement. Before
Milestone proceeds with the tower at Eleanor Roosevelt or at any other school in our
ADMINISTRATION
system, we must re-examine whether this contract best meets the needs of our students,
Chief Executive Officer parents and communities.
Kevin M. Maxwell, Ph.D.
Telephone: 301-952-6008 While local school communities are asked to accept cell phone towers, they receive no
direct benefit. This issue deserves more consideration by the Administration and
Board. Administrative Procedure 0800 calls for community input. The community has
spoken on Milestones shortcomings in this area. Now, as the elected Board of
Education member, so have I.

I ask that you reject this proposal immediately.

Sincerely,

Lupi Grady
Board Member, District 2
