Project Description: The action involves a subdivision into sites involving the lease of a 100 foot by 100 foot parcel for the construction of a new 91 foot-tall (above ground level - AGL) telecommunications tower, the top 20 feet to be concealed as a simulated pine tree. The total height of the simulated tree tower will be 96 feet (91 foot tower plus 5 foot crown branch), and will be located within a 33 foot by 48 foot fenced-in equipment compound located 683 ± feet (0.1± miles) north of the edge of right-of-way of Fraternaland Road. A vegetative "no cutting" easement will protect trees in the vicinity of the proposed tower. Within the equipment compound, New York RSA 2 Cellular Partnership d/b/a Verizon Wireless is proposing to install a total of twelve 8 foot tall panel antennas on the tower (at a centerline height of 87 feet AGL) and construct a 11.5 foot by 16 foot equipment platform, including a backup generator. Access to the facility will involve improvement to an existing woods trail to construct an 809 ± foot long gravel driveway to accommodate construction and service vehicles. Underground utilities will be located along the 12 foot wide driveway and within the 50-foot-wide access and utility easement.
