We went toe-to-toe with Big Wireless. And won!
Our Mission. RESPECTMedina works to forever preserve, protect and maintain Medina’s treasured parks and natural areas for the public good, for today and future generations.
We're Successful. We fought against the gifting of 15% of Fairweather Park to Big Wireless in 2014, and we fought against the illegitimate conversion of Fairweather Park into a wireless industrial park in 2015, 2016 and 2017 - and won!
What we do. We are:
- Advocating for parks, and holding industry accountable for
smarter, more respectful, more responsible wireless solutions. Medina residents deserve options that are pro-park, pro-technology and pro-community, and we help hold the powerful accountable for valuing people and parks over short-term profits.
- Fighting Big Wireless in court to keep their industrial cell towers and infrastructures in the highway right-of-way and outside our parks. Parks should be their last alternative, not their first.
- Supporting Medina's Parks Board and community intiatives for Medina's parks.
RespectMedina is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Medina, Washington, founded in 2014 by a grass-roots group of Medina residents, focused on the protection, preservation and maintenance of Medina's neighborhood parks and natural areas, in their natural state, for the public good.
Our community group is pro-park, pro-technology, and pro-community. If the wireless companies need new Eastside sites, there are better solutions, outside our parks. Parks should be the last option, not their first.
