Document Description
The project consists of a Major Modification to Special Use and Design Permits (93-249) for an existing emergency communications center to allow the construction of two new 100-foot tall telecommunications towers. One tower is planned to be installed at this time, and a second tower may be added at a later date. The proposed tower will appear to be a 100-foot tall artificial tree resembling an evergreen tree, such as a Douglas Fir or Redwood. The proposal also includes construction of a 600 square foot equipment building. The mono-pine antenna structure will house as many as 30 "whip" antennas, 24 "panel" antennas, and 2 microwave dishes.
