Document Description
The Hopland REC cellular phone facility consists of ground-mounted telecommunications equipment installed in 2001 on a hilltop along the west side of the Hopland section of the Napa Valley on land owned by the University of California in Mendocino County. The cellular phone facility is operated by a third-party for the purpose of providing cellular phone service in the surrounding area with the cellular provider paying a monthly lease fee to the University of California in exchange for the use of the land. The project would result in changes to the existing facility and installation of a secondary cellular telecommunications facility.
