Proposed Wireless Coverage Improvement
*After a careful review the alternative location was chosen for the final pole location. The zoning application has been amended to reflect the location change. Scroll down to see new photo simulations which show what the tower will look like at the new location*
AT&T has identified a gap in wireless coverage and service in your community. AT&T and Milestone Communications have filed an application for a wireless telecommunications facility at the Lake Braddock Secondary School, located at 9120 Burke Lake Road, Burke, VA. The proposal is for a 120′ tall replacement light standard designed to hold telecommunications antennas at the top. A location was selected in consultation with school staff. The facility will not interfere with the school’s use of the property. The facility requires ground equipment to operate. The equipment will be located at the foot of the pole in a fenced and locked compound under the bleachers of the football stadium (3,003 square feet) . An emergency back up generator (184 square feet) will be located 25′ west of the bleachers in a fenced in and locked compound.

We flew a balloon at the new location at a height of 120 feet, took photographs from a number of spots in the neighborhood, and then superimposed a monopole. The following photo simulations show how the proposed monopole would look like from various vantage points around the neighborhood.
