Document Description
The proposed project would involve installation of new telecommunications equipment in the same area of existing telecommunication equipment by T-Mobile (Applicant) within the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina (Tenant) leasehold in the City of San Diego, California. Work to specifically complete the proposed project would involve the installation of four (4) panel antennas and four remote radio units (RRUs) to four sectors, one (1) antennae and one RRU per sector. The electrical service in the rooftop equipment cabinet area would be upgraded from 100 amps to 200 amps, and all new equipment would be installed in the areas of existing equipment. Construction of the proposed project is anticipated to occur in Fall 2021 and would take approximately two (2) months to complete. 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.
