Wireless Application for Sites Near Piedmont High School

Crown Castle and Beacon Development filed an application in November 2016 for nine Verizon distributed antenna system wireless communication facilities, located generally around Piedmont Park and Piedmont High School. Crown Castle is a company that builds wireless communications facilities and then leases them to wireless service providers, such as AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon.

The project consists of five installations on the tops of existing utility poles, three installations on the tops of existing street light poles, and one installation on a new street light. The applicants have proposed that ground equipment related to the pole top antennas be located in underground vaults in the sidewalk. The proposal will require review by both the Park Commission and Planning Commission, as well as final approval from the City Council.
