Subject: (EXCP-4-14-0876) Special Exception Use request to construct a 95-feet wireless telecommunication tower (Mono-Pine) located at 6507 Moon Road.

Rick Jones, AICP
Director, Planning Department

On 4/18/2014, Verizon Wireless/Andy Rotenstreich submitted a Special Exception Use application to construct a 95-feet wireless telecommunication tower (Mono-Pine). The property is located in an SFR1 (Single Family Residential 1) zoning district. The site for the proposed wireless telecommunication facility is approximately 5.025 acres. Wireless telecommunication facilities are permitted in an SFR1 zoning district only on a site-specific basis upon approval of the Council based upon some conditions.

Attached is a land use map showing the location of the property along with the proposed site plan. The Planning Department has recommended Denial. The request will be on Council’s June 24th’s agenda. A staff report will be sent to the Clerk of Council prior to the Council meeting date.
