Document Description
Development Review Permit No. DRP20-0041 is an application to modify an approximately 250 square foot existing lease area for telecommunication purposes. The T-Mobile project includes excavation of a 17-inch by 30-inch hand hole; installation of a new 3-inch conduit stub out at the base of the utility pole, for a distance of approximately 10-feet from the hand hole; and installation of a new 2-inch Y-intercept Telco Conduit to a new 12-inch by 12-inch by 8-inch Telco box and new 2-inch Telco Conduit from the Telco box to a new AAV cabinet. The anticipated excavations for conduit placement will be to a depth of 3-feet below grade and for a distance of approximately 150 feet. Operation and maintenance activities for the proposed project will be consistent with operation and maintenance activities for the existing Rawland Monopalm telecommunication equipment. As such, operation and maintenance activities would include regular visual inspections of the equipment, with repair and maintenance activities conducted on an as-needed basis. The same existing access road to Citrus Avenue will continue to provide access to and from the project site. No additional personnel would be required to conduct operations and maintenance activities, and no increase in utility demands would occur as a result of the project. No new public utility infrastructure, parking, walls or fencing will be constructed as part of the project.
