Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration for the proposed Verdugo Peak Communications Tower Improvement Project. The proposed project is the construction of a new self-supporting steel tripod communication tower, which will be about 180 feet tall, and includes footing modification and electrical conduit, at an existing communications facility at the summit of Verdugo Peak, within the City of Glendale. Mitigation measures have been included to ensure that any impacts are reduced to less than significant.
Based on an Initial Study, the City Council adopted a Mitigated Negative Declaration on October 31, 2012 and a Notice of Determination was filed with the Los Angeles County Clerk (CF 12-1509).
In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), codified at 42 U.S.C 4321 et seq., a Draft Environmental Assessment was prepared and made available for public comment. The project is subject to NEPA review because it is being funded, with Federal funding available from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice programs, Bureau of Justice Assistance. The Bureau of Justice Assistance adopted a Finding of No Significant Impact on September 7, 2012.
