Document Description
A Conditional Use Permit for the development of 140' tall lattice cell tower. The structure will be a 3-legged tower with each leg being 14' wide at the base. This width tapers to +/- 7' at the top. The tower and all appurtenances will be painted dark green in an effort to blend with the surrounding trees and existing foliage. This tower will be able to accommodate an additional 2-3 carriers in the future and will provide coverage to residents and golfers in the Baywood/Golf Course Road valley. The project includes the placement of a small equipment cabinet at the base of the tower on the 20' x 20' concrete slab. Once fully developed at capacity, there could be up to 3 of these small equipment sheds at the base of the tower. The site for the construction of the tower is behind the existing maintenance building at the far eastern boundary of the golf course property. Only the top of the tower will be visible from one or two residential neighbors and once it is painted green (and maintained for its lifetime), it will be difficult to locate. No new water or sewage disposal facilities will be required. The SP is required to exceed the 35' height limit of the R-1 zone.
