Access will be, in part, over a 30 foot easement over tax parcels 224.03-2-39 and 224-1-6.11. The 2,600 ± foot long access road will generally follow an existing woods road. Underground utilities will be installed along the road. Twelve trees greater than 6 inches diameter breast heighth (DBH) and located within 100 feet of the proposed tower are proposed to be removed to undertake the project.
