Improvements to the ground equipment would include installation of a baseband unit and mount to the existing telecommunications equipment frame within the equipment room. Construction of the proposed project is anticipated to occur in Winter 2020 and would take approximately six weeks to complete. Construction equipment would be staged at three (3) parking spaces adjacent to the site for the duration of construction.
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, significant 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.
The proposed project would also include a Right of Entry (ROE) to the Applicant to enter certain properties located in the City of San Diego, California. The area proposed for use under this ROE would be used by the Applicant and their authorized agent(s) and contractor(s) for the purpose of a laydown area for the use of storing materials, equipment and machinery, as well as ingress and egress in support of those activities.
