by Bureau of Land Management
February 7, 2010
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office is seeking public input on a proposed 150-foot tall communication tower and associated electronic equipment buildings located near Daniel, Wyo.
The proposed communication site is approximately 1.2 miles west of Highway 189, and 0.2 miles south of the Cottonwood-Ryegrass Road (County Road 23-117), and would provide improved cell phone coverage by Verizon Wireless in the Sublette County.
The proposed 150-foot height meets the height and structural requirementsand places the antennas high enough to be able to transfer calls to other existing and future towers. The tower height also provides adequate vertical space to accommodate additional users; Union Telephone Company hasalready expressed interest in co-locating at this facility if it is approved and constructed.
Comments on the proposed communication site will be accepted though Feb.22, 2010. Please mail comments to: Bill Wadsworth, BLM Pinedale Field Office, PO Box 768, Pinedale, WY 82941; email to: Pinedale_WYMail@blm.gov; or drop off at the BLM Pinedale Field Office, 1625 West Pine St. in Pinedale. Please include "Daniel Communication Site" in the subject line.
