Project Title: RCC Atlantic, Young's Road Site

Comment Period Ends: May 19, 2005

Project Description: The project is a change in use of an existing 50 ft. tower from its previously authorized use by a cable TV company to a telecommunication tower.

The overall height of the existing tower and attached antennas is 56 feet. The renovated tower will have an overall height of 60 feet. The new flat panel antennas will be centered at the 56 ft. height on the tower with the top of the antennas at 60 feet. RCC Atlantic also proposes to clear vegetation within a 50 ft. radius around the tower/equipment compound and construct a 10 ft. x 12 ft. equipment building within a 10 ft. x 20 ft. fenced area at the base of the tower. Besides the tower, there are four other existing structures (i.e., a motel, a mobile home and two sheds) on the project site. The existing tower is located immediately behind the motel and mobile home.
