County Name San Bernardino ( South CA Region )
Lead Agency Forestry and Fire Protection, Department of
Abstract
The proposed project involves replacement of two-existing communications towers and associated structures on Strawberry Peak, an unincorporated area of San Bernardino County approximately 4.4 miles southwest of Lake Arrowhead. The proposed project would demolish and replace a 40-foot communications tower, an 80-foot communications tower, an equipment vault, and other supporting infrastructure to meet current construction and safety standards. The new tower would be a 150-foot-tall, self supporting, four-legged lattice structure with upper monopoles, safety ladders, platforms, and lightning arrestors. Based on consultation with USFS, CalFire may consider constructing two shorter towers, less than 100 feet in height, within the same footprint as the proposed project. The site is presently under the jurisdiction of CalFire through a 20-year Special Use Permit (SUP) provided by the USFS, with an expiration date of December 3, 2020. The two existing CalFire communications towers, the vault, and a generator building would be demolished after construction of the new tower and associated facilities. The equipment vault would be a concrete masonry unit (CMU) building or prefabricated concrete building. No new roads or road improvements are anticipated; however, loose gravel may be used.
