Crown Castle/DISH Network - Proposed Lease Expansion at Birdsall Park





Crown Castle, the applicant, possesses a lease agreement with the City of Rialto for an existing wireless telecommunications facility located at Birdsall Park - 2611 N. Linden Avenue.  The existing wireless telecommunications facility currently provides wireless service for T-Mobile.  Crown Castle has recently partnered with DISH Network and now seeks to modify the facility at Birdsall Park to accommodate equipment from DISH Network.


Specifically, Crown Castle proposes to add 48 square feet to the existing 462 square foot lease area to facilitate the installation of ground mounted equipment for DISH Network.  New equipment will also be installed on the existing monopole.  The 48 square feet is located just north of the existing monopole in an area of the park that is currently vacant.


The proposed lease rate for the 48 square feet begins at $500 per month with 2.8% annually increases beginning in 2028.  Additionally, Crown Castle proposes to offer the City a $1,000 signing bonus to offset the increases that would not happen until 2028.  The proposed lease rate will be in addition to the current lease rate of $3,328.49 per month for the 462 square foot lease area.


In addition to an amendment to the existing lease, the proposal will also require the approval of a Conditional Development Permit and a Precise Plan of Design by the Planning Commission.


Crown Castle will conduct a presentation during the meeting, a copy of which is attached as Attachment No. 1.




Staff recommends that the EDC review the proposal and provide general direction to the applicant and staff.
