Document Description
The proposed project would involve the installation of six panel antennas on a 12-foot high “top hat” extension, three 6449 antenna integrated radio (air) antennas with a centerline height of 45 feet, six Verizon Wireless radios, two Verizon Wireless Raycap, a microwave antenna with a centerline height of 35 feet, and two hybrid wireless cables. An equipment enclosure consisting of a 19-foot by 19-foot concrete pad with 8-foot-tall composite fencing would enclose the facilities’ ground equipment, including an emergency generator, within the base of the PG&E transmission tower and would operate under two hours per day for occasional maintenance activities. A new transformer would be located on a 4-foot 2-inch by 4-foot 4-inch pad approximately 9 feet west of the equipment enclosure pad along with a 3,000-gallon water tank. Additionally, the proposed project would include the installation of new Verizon Wireless fiber vaults every 150 feet along Sanders Ranch Road and installation of a new fiber route for approximately 8,600 feet through existing in-road conduits. To provide access to the facility for construction and maintenance, a new 15-foot-wide access driveway constructed of Class II aggregate base would be graded and built approximately 155 feet northwest from near the end of Sanders Ranch Road to the existing PG&E transmission tower to be modified. The new road would be built on some portions of slopes exceeding 20 percent, roughly following the alignment of a portion of Old Moraga Ranch Trail for approximately 630 feet, and would also cross a Moraga Open Space Ordinance minor ridgeline.
