Concrete pads will be added to support the new infrastructure, with the maximum footprint comprising approximately 150 square feet. The project is not located at a hazardous waste site, is not located near any scenic highways, will not cause a change to a historical resource, will not generate noise or odors in excess of permitted levels and will not involve the removal of any trees or vegetation.
