Welcome to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) website for the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) review of proposed construction, operation and maintenance of Crown Castle NG West’s (Crown Castle’s) (U-6745-C) San Mateo County Project. An application for this project was submitted to the CPUC on February 5, 2013 (Application A.13-02-007). An amendment to the application was submitted to the CPUC on September 6, 2013. The amended application accompanied by an amended Proponents Environmental Assessment (PEA) supersedes the original application and PEA. This site provides access to public documents and information relevant to the CEQA review process.
Crown Castle has filed an application with the CPUC to construct, operate and maintain the San Mateo County Project. The CPUC is the CEQA lead agency and the County of San Mateo is a responsible agency.
The San Mateo County Project, as proposed by Crown Castle, includes installation of distributed antenna systems (DAS) network facilities, including fiber optic cable, antennas, nodes and related facilities along approximately 14.2 miles of existing highway rights-of-way (ROW), primarily along Highway 1 (Hwy 1) in San Mateo County. In addition to the County of San Mateo, the proposed project alignment would traverse an existing 0.5 mile utility easement in Año Nuevo State Park. Approximately 12.8 miles of the fiber-optic cable would be placed aerially on existing utility poles and approximately 1.4 miles of new conduit would be installed underground within existing ROWs. (See the Project Location Map from the PEA)
