Sutro Tower Digital Television Project
NOP - Notice of Preparation
Present Land Use
Existing Land Use: A broadcast communications facility and tower.
Zoning: RH-1 (D) (Residential, One-Family, Detached) use district; 40-X height and bulk district (40-foot height limit; no bulk limit)
General Plan Designation: Residential
The project site is in the Midtown Terrace area of the Twin Peaks neighborhood. The proposed project would involve conversion of the television antennas on Sutro Tower from the current combination of analog and digital to an all-digital system, in compliance with a Federal Communications Commission mandate effective 2009. Additional smaller-scale antennas (such as microwave dishes and panel antennas) would also be added. In addition, the project could include the replacement or addition of small ancillary and accessory antennas and equipment. The proposed project also includes structural, electrical, elevator, and public safety improvements to the tower. The project would result in an overall net reduction of approximately 14 television antennas, from 22 to 8 antennas. There would be no expansion of the tower itself or the ancillary buildings at the base of the tower.
