Pinedale BLM Seeks Comment on Proposed Daniel Communication Tower


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office is seeking public input on a proposed 150-foot tall communication tower and associated electronic equipment buildings located near Daniel, Wyo.

The proposed communication site is approximately 1.2 miles west of Highway 189, and 0.2 miles south of the Cottonwood-Ryegrass Road (County Road 23-117), and would provide improved cell phone coverage by Verizon Wireless in the Sublette County.

The proposed 150-foot height meets the height and structural requirements and places the antennas high enough to be able to transfer calls to other existing and future towers. The tower height also provides adequate vertical space to accommodate additional users; Union Telephone Company has already expressed interest in co-locating at this facility if it is approved and constructed.

Comments on the proposed communication site will be accepted though Feb. 22, 2010.

Please mail comments to: Bill Wadsworth, BLM Pinedale Field Office, PO Box 768, Pinedale, WY 82941; email to: Pinedale_WYMail@blm.gov; or drop off at the BLM Pinedale Field Office, 1625 West Pine St. in Pinedale. Please include “Daniel Communication Site” in the subject line.

The BLM manages more land - 253 million acres - than any other Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of about $1 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
