Document Description
The applicant, Sequoia Development, representing Omnipoint Communications, Inc., a subsidiary of T-Mobile USA, Inc. (T-Mobile), proposes to install, operate, and maintain an unmanned wireless telecommunication facility consisting of a 35-foot monopole disguised as a eucalyptus tree at 750 South Russell Avenue. The subject property is owned by the City of Monterey Park and is the site of two large water reservoir tanks that are part of the City's domestic water system. The hilltop site is enclosed by a chain link fence to prevent public access to the water facilities. Surrounding uses include single-family homes to the north along Russell Avenue (which dead-ends at the subject property) and Garvey Reservoir, a large regional water storage facility operated the Metropolitan Water District, to the south, east, and west. The site is zoned Open Space (O-S).
