The applicant, GTE Mobilnet, has applied for a Use Permit and Design Review to construct and operate a new wireless telecommunications facility for Version Wireless on a developed lot in unincorporated Novato. The facility would consist of a new 50-foot tall broadleaf monotree with 4 panel antennas. Associated components would include equipment cabinets, 30kw standby diesel generator, 2 GPS antennas and a 132-gallon fuel tank. All equipment would be enclosed by a new 6-foot chain link fence along the lease boundary, approximately 50 foot by 50 foot. The lease area is approximately 3,760 feet from the northern property line, 1,045 feet from the eastern property line, 1,378 feet from the southern property line, and 491 feet from the western property line. The proposed project would strengthen signal strength in the area.
