The telecommunication site will be located on private property at 1275 Alderdale Road, Chisholm.  Specifically, tower centre and the site will be setback 136m west of Alderdale Road.  The existing gated entrance will be utilized to enter the subject property.  The existing access road will be extended to the site which will have a chain-link fence to ensure public access is restricted.

Rogers has proposed a 90m guyed tower at the proposed site. A guyed tower is a narrow, lattice tower that has three sets of guyed wires that extend to supporting anchors.  The site will be comprised of the guyed tower, antenna equipment installed on tower, and a radio-equipment cabinet located within a 7.6m x 9.5m chain-link fenced compound at tower base.

Tower will comply with Transport Canada and NAV Canada regulations with Rogers submitting necessary applications. Rogers anticipates the proposed tower will require lighting for both daytime and nighttime aeronautical protection.  A split system with a medium intensity flashing white beacon during daytime and twilight use that switches to a medium intensity flashing red beacon at top of tower in addition of a red flashing dual obstruction light at the mid-point of tower during nighttime is compliant with CAR 621 Standards Obstruction Markings.

Health and Safety

Antenna equipment on cell towers transmit and receive radiofrequency energy to connect with wireless devices. Exposure to low levels of radiofrequency energy from cell phone towers is safe within Health Canada’s Safety Code 6 exposure guidelines.  Rogers attests that the antenna system described in this letter will be installed and operated on an ongoing basis to comply with Health Canada’s Safety Code 6, for the protection of the public including any combined operation of additional carrier co-locations and nearby installations.

The proposed facility will be constructed in compliance with the National Building Code, Canadian Standard Association (CAN/CSA-S37-18) and respect good engineering practices including structural adequacy. The facility will comply with the Impact Assessment.
