The Village of Chase has been approached by two telecommunications companies notifying the Village of their desire to upgrade cell phone and internet technology in the village.  This would require the installation of towers to improve communications infrastructure in the Village and put it on par with surrounding areas.  While municipal approval is not a requirement of the approval process through the CRTC, it certainly helps to have local support demonstrated through a Council resolution. 

Through the process of updating the Official Community Plan, it was mentioned by many in the community that cell service in Chase can be spotty and that internet service is slow.  Policies within the draft OCP indicate that the Village should advocate for better service in the community to improve quality of life for residents, assist with emergency response, and support local business.  The Village has also heard concerns from some residents on the perceived health impacts of cell towers in particular.  In order to help Council with developing a position on whether to support these projects, we are asking for input from residents on this matter.  Please answer the following questions:
