County approves permits to add cell tower equipment
September 27, 2011
King County approved permits Sept. 21 for AT&T to add antennae and equipment to Issaquah-area cell towers.
The county issued building permits for the telecommunications giant to modify the existing cell towers near the Issaquah Sportsmen’s Club, 23600 S.E. Evans St., and at 18011 S.E. Renton-Issaquah Road, less than a half-mile southwest of the intersection of the street and Southeast May Valley Road.
AT&T applied to the King County Department of Development and Environmental Services to add three antennae, six remote radio heads and a surge protector to the cabinet on each tower.
The county permitting agency is handling the application for the Issaquah Sportsmen’s Club site because the shooting range is a county island surrounded by Issaquah and is near Issaquah High School.
