Document Description
A Special Permit is required for a cellular communications tower, which will exceed the allowed 35-foot height limit in the Agricultural General zone. The proposed tower will be 120 feet tall. The tower will be a monopole or lattice design without top lighting. Electrical service to the site will be by cable from an existing PG&E pole located adjacent to the Site. Six panel antennas are planned at the top of the tower and no microwave antennas (dishes) at this time, with the potential to accommodate three more sets of panels. The applicant has leased 3,600 square feet on the subject parcel which will be served by a 20 foot access easement off of an existing private road to the site. The lease area will be surrounded by a 6 foot high chain link fence with barbed wire on top. It is proposed that Cellular Equipment Cabinets be located adjacent to and on the tower concrete slab. Other providers will be able to co-locate on this tower and place additional cabinets within the leased area. A Building Permit and cumulative RF Study will be required of this applicant and each future provider in order to co-locate. The parcel is currently partially developed with a residence, outbuildings, and miscellaneous improvements.
