Document Description
CDF intends to demolish the dilapidated Call Mountain Lookout tower because in it current condition the facility is a hazard, is in poor repair and constitutes an inviting nuisance to members of the public. Demolition will occur as soon as funding is available and when practical; April through October for accessibility as roads are native surfaced. CDF personnel, inmate crews and/or contractors will conduct the demolition. The project will be confined to the curtilage of the lookout tower, all on State-owned land. Materials and equipment will be staged on the short spur road off the main access road and in the immediate area of the tower itself - no undisturbed land will be disturbed as a result of the project implementation. The site is not readily accessible to the public; it is 5 miles off of a paved road and behind locked gates.
