Project Title: Independent Tower Holdings, LLC Telecommunications Tower - Thurman

For Adirondack Park Agency: Comment Period Ends: January 13, 2011

Project Description: The project is a subdivision into sites involving the lease of a 100 foot by 100 foot parcel for the construction of a new 120 foot tall (above existing ground level) telecommunications tower within a 75 foot by 75 foot fenced-in equipment compound. The compound will be located 360 ± feet north of Huber Road. The tower is designed and will be constructed as a simulated tree. A vegetative "no cutting" easement will protect trees in the vicinity of the proposed tower.

Within the fenced-in equipment compound, AT&T Mobility - Upstate NY is proposing to install six panel antennas on the tower (with future co-location of three additional panel antennas at the same height) and construct a 20 foot by 12 foot equipment shelter along with a backup generator. Access to the facility will be by an existing driveway and trail, which will be upgraded to accommodate construction and service vehicles. Underground utilities will be located along the road.

Room for four additional carriers is available both within the compound and on the tower.
