Document Description
This project involves the construction of an unmanned wireless communications facility on the 2.65-acre Carlton Hills Evangelical Lutheran Church site in the City of Santee, California. The proposed wireless communications facility would consist of two new structures: a 49'-4"-foot tall bell tower and a 160 foot, ground-level equipment enclosure. Within the proposed bell tower, the applicant intends to locate twelve (12), 6'-tall panel antennas, a microwave dish antenna, and ancillary equipment. A 5'8" tall cross is proposed at the top of the bell tower. The enclosure would be constructed of a nine-foot tall masonry block wall and would contain equipment cabinets as well as a 30 kW emergency diesel generator.
