We have received confirmation from the City of Petaluma that Verizon has approached the City of Petaluma to install the first fifteen (15) 4G/5G so-called “Small Cell” cellphone towers in Petaluma’s residential zones. We are still awaiting an accurate map and GPS coordinates of the target microwave transmitter locations and will post the information here, when we receive the information/approval to publish it.
A first look at the currently available information from Verizon (no formal application, yet) shows that the 4G/5G so-called “Small Cell” cellphone towers will be installed on Utility poles (jointly owned/maintained by PG&E and AT&T) at the following locations (our best estimate).

This is What No One Wants: Verizon Microwave Transmitters 10-50 Feet from Homes
. . . like these in Santa Rosa, which could be coming to Petaluma, if we don’t persuade the City Council to not allow these in Petaluma’s residential zones
If You Have a Problem With This Plan, Call Rudy Reyes from Verizon

A cell tower might give you five to ten miles radius of coverage, but the small cells for 4G/LTE densification goes a few blocks . . . for 5G, the spectrum is going to be millimeter wave spectrum. That spectrum goes much shorter distances, maybe 100 feet and requires a line of sight . . . we are going to need about five to ten times the number of 5G nodes, as we will 4G/LTE nodes . . . so it is really about p times q, price times quantity. So this cost formula needs to pencil out in order to bring 5G to California . . . just for dowtown LA, Verizon alone is going to need 200 to 300 small cells just to densify for 4G/LTE. Then you have to multiply that for five to ten times for when we get to 5G.
This means 1,000 to 3,000 5G small cells in downtown LA, which according to Dr. Google is 4.75 square miles. This would spread 300 4G Small cells + 3,000 5G Small Cells over 4.75 square miles for Verizon alone. If each major Wireless Carrier does the same (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile), that’s 3300 x 4 = 13,200 small cells in roughly an area 11,500 feet by 11,500 feet or one small cell for every 10,000 square feet – understanding that an average Safeway is 50,000 square feet
