    I am interested in the role that zoning and permitting plays in the new tower site construction process . Specifically I am interested in the impact that community opposition can have on the process. Is anyone aware of research reports, statistics or surveys that quantify this impact? Specifically, I am interested in:

    1) The probability that a planned tower is defeated
    2) The average delay caused by community opposition
    3) The percentage of cell towers that are opposed
    4) The primary reasons cited for opposition (aesthetics, RF waves, diesel generators, etc..)
    5) Financial impact on the wireless service provider related to opposition

    Any other information or personal insight would be greatly appreciated.
