NOE - Notice of Exemption
AT&T wireless proposes to make modifications to an existing telecommunications tower located at the Mount Howell Lookout site. Modifications include installing a new pre-fab equipment shelter inside an 8' chain link enclosure along with accompanying antennas and telecommunication equipment. The project will also include installing a new 50kw generator on a 6" thick concrete slab approximately 3' wide and 6' long; a new 499 gallon propane tank on 6" thick concrete slab approximately 4' wide and 10' long; and a new 12' wide access gate. The new antennas and telecommunication equipment will be placed on the equipment shelter and existing tower. The remainder of the project install will occur in a heavily disturbed area (approx. 20' x 23') immediately adjacent to the existing tower. The project will not impact on existing vegetation.
