Conditional Use Permit LU10-0011 is for a wireless communication facility located above Lake Piru at a water treatment facility on the western shore of the lake. The applicant, AT&T, is proposing to remove a 30 foot tall wooden power pole and install a 60 foot tall wireless communication antenna tower designed and painted to look like a wooden power pole. AT&T would locate three, 6-foot tall antennas wit RAD center located at 57 feet up the tower and one 24-inch microwave dish antenna with RAD center at 49 feet up the tower. The antennas would be enclosed within a radome screen atop the tower. The County of Ventura would co-locate two 10-foot tall whip (omni) antennas on top of the tower that would extend up to 70 feet. The associated equipment cabinets will be located adjacent to the tower. Emergency backup batteries will be installed within the equipment cabinets. Access to the site will be provided by an existing 12-foot wide dirt road via Piru Canyon Road. The site will be unmanned except for periodic maintenance and will not utilize water to operate. The purpose of the project is to provide cellular telephone coverage in the Lake Piru recreation area.
