The project consists of the construction and operation of an unmanned wireless telecommunication facility, consisting of a 120-foot-tall monopine tower, 64-square-foot equipment shelter, and 30 kilowatt (kW) diesel back-up generator with a level 2 acoustic enclosure and 190-gallon fuel tank, located within a 30-foot by 40-foot lease area enclosed by a 6-foot tall chain-link fence with vinyl slats.

Approximately 473 feet of underground power conduit will be installed along Knighton Road and the access driveway to connect the facility to existing power lines situated on Knighton Road. Grading and footings will be necessary to construct the tower. Construction equipment will include a concrete mixer, grading equipment, a crane to install the tower, and common equipment used for building construction.
