  4. Membership Presentation:

    • State of Sully by Michael Frey, Sully Supervisor

  5. Land Use and Transportation will be scheduled as required:

    1. 8:30
      • Proponent: Edward L. Donohue, Donohue & Stearns, PLC
      • Action: Planned upgrades for Crown Castle Hunter Mill DAS network
      • Location: Hunter Mill Road
        Crown Castle is planning upgrades on certain DAS nodes in the Hunter Mill network to accommodate 4G LTE service by AT&T.
        The completion of this project will bring faster data speeds and increased network capacity to the areas served by the network, allowing these residents and mobile users access to cutting-edge wireless technology. The locations to be changed are highlighted in the attached slide deck.
        The work at each node involves removing the existing node cabinet and replacing it with a new-generation 4G cabinet which is similar in overall volume to what is currently permitted and installed. There will also be some replacing of cables and antennas contained within the existing shrouds and risers. Nodes 5, 6 and 7 are moving into initial construction and will be installed with this configuration under the current County building permits. While minor in nature, this work is a critical part of Crown's routine and continuing efforts to keep its DAS networks operating at peak performance.
        Crown expects to commence this activity as soon as weather and availability of our construction crews permit. Work at each node will be fairly brief, and Crown will manage traffic in conformance with its VDOT maintenance permit for occasional ROW work. Because this work involves (i) a "like-for-like" swapping out of components with no change in function, and (ii) no significant change in size to the permitted equipment and enclosures, Crown does not require and is not seeking any County approvals for this work. But, in the interest in being a good community partner and keeping you and the staff informed about our activities in the area, we wanted to provide you with this information ahead of our work in the field.
        The attached presentation provides a list of the locations to be improved, sample "before" and "after" pictures of the cabinets, and a profile drawing of the new installation. We wanted to let you know about this work ahead of time so that you would be fully informed in case there are any resident inquiries to you or the Supervisors' offices.
