This proposed project will not result in a change in the functional use of the real property. The project will be contained within the current footprint of U.S. Coast Guard telecommunications site and will replace antennas. The CHP low band, receive only, antennas on the US Coast Guard's tower are going to be replaced with new Sinclair SD-11 antennas. The low band frequencies will be changed to improve telecommunications and radio capabilities.
The project is exempt under 15301(b) that allows negligible expansion of an existing use of existing facilities. The antennas installation will improve public safety telecommunications and radio capabilities for an enhanced emergency response.
