VACAVILLE — The City Council on Tuesday unanimously approved a resolution authorizing the execution of a lease between New Cingular Wireless PCS and the city for use of hillside property to erect a wireless antenna site.
Estimated yearly income from the five-year lease for the cell site begins at $41,057 for 2014-15 with an annual 4 percent adjustment annually for inflation. The contract allows for four five-year extensions.
The two-parcel site – of which a portion is being leased – is located at 5473 Lyon Road and is visible from Interstate 80. Plans include an earth tone 12-antenna faux barn structure, equipment shed and supporting infrastructure, such as an access road and small retaining walls, according to staff reports.
The sites, which are outside the city limits, are maintained by the city’s Public Works Department and are also sometimes used for cattle grazing.
The city first received the request in March 2013 with the Solano County Planning Commission approving the land use permit in February of this year.
