NOE - Notice of Exemption
Project Applicant
Rodney Philhower

Document Description
The proposed project would involve replacement and modification of existing telecommunications equipment by Verizon (Applicant) in the City of San Diego, California. Work to specifically complete the proposed project would include removal of six (6) existing panel antennas, installation of six new panel antennas in new configuration, and replacement of six remote radio units (RRU) adjacent to the antennas on an existing monopine to improve telecommunications service. Construction of the proposed project is anticipated to occur in Winter 2020 and would take approximately three (3) weeks to complete with ongoing installations, modifications, maintenance, and removal as needed. Due to its nature and limited scope, construction of the proposed project would generate a minor amount of vehicle trips and would require limited use of equipment. Therefore, impacts related to air quality, greenhouse gas emissions, and transportation and traffic are not anticipated to occur. Furthermore, the Applicant would be responsible for complying with all applicable federal, state, and local laws regarding construction demolition debris, hazards and hazardous materials, and stormwater.
