Telecom tower planned at SDC
A 150-foot telecommunications tower is proposed to be installed within the next few months on Sonoma Developmental Center (SDC) property.
According to material from one of the companies involved in the project, Geist Engineering & Environmental Group, the tower will be located near Orchard Rd., on a flat area above the former main administration building. The 150-foot tower would be coated to help conceal it.
According to a letter from Geist, “The State of California and national wireless carriers will collocate their antennas on the monopole and place their equipment within a new adjacent building.” According to drawings, the equipment building would be one story, unmanned, and 20 feet by 80 feet.
The property would be leased from the State of California by Horizon Tower LLC, a Danville-based company which has developed a number of communications towers on the west coast.
