We require one hard copy of the plans (24 x 36) and one electronic version, pdf, with all pages in one document. With respect to the property owner signature, you will want to submit something (perhaps form the lease) that affirms there is consent for the replacement. Given that this site is new and is permitted under the current Zoning Code, a third party review will not be necessary. The Commission meets the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month. We're actually caught up on workload so right now, its 4-6 week turnaround, though trying to err closer to 4 weeks. If you have other questions, please feel free to contact me. Sincerely, Anne L.

I actually had on my running To Do list an action item to phone you today! So a hearing will be required but on the Consent calendar right?

Perrault Mobile: From: Anne Hersch Sent: Thursday, April 10, 20144:24 PM To: Subject: RE: Resolution CCL04554 City of Albany Hi Charlotte, We spoke last week about the antenna replacement for the AT&T facility at 1035 San Pablo Ave. I indicated that our Planning & Zoning Commission would discuss the review of antenna replacement. In their discussion last night, they indicated that would still like to review the Zoning Clearance applications for antenna replacement, though have it on the consent calendar at their hearings. To complete the replacement of the three antennas as detailed in your previous , you will need to file for a Zoning Clearance. The fee is $97 and you will need to submit the project plans with a description of the project. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Sincerely, Anne L.

Thank you and Happy Friday! Charlotte C. Perrault Mobile:

9 From: Sent: Wednesday, March 26, 20142:29 PM To: Subject: Resolution CCL04554 City of Albany Ms. Hersch: Good afternoon. I am writing in regard to a Use Permit that was approved February of last year to allow AT&T Wireless to install antennas and Remote Radio Units on the roof of the building located at 1035 San Pablo Avenue. AT&T completed the installation in August last year and received Building Sign off accordingly. At the time ofthe installation, (3) ofthe approved and planned Remote Radio heads were not installed as they were not commercially available. You might recall these are auxiliary radio components placed next to the screened antennas. The needed models are now available and AT&T wishes to install them at this time. In addition, AT&T is needing to replace (3) of the antennas installed with different model antennas. They are substantially the same in dimensions and again are screened from view. Existing antenna dimension: Replacement antenna: 55.2xll.8x6 55xll.9x7.1 With all that said, we believe that this antenna change and the adding of the equipment already approved would be considered maintenance by City of Albany. We want to however confirm this with you prior to submitting for a building permit. Would you kindly review the attached and if in agreement sign and return to me? Thank you for taking the time to review this situation and I look forward to receiving direction from you. Regards, Charlotte C.

21 The proposed modification at 1035 San Pablo Ave Albany, CA 94706, is necessary in order to improve the performance and capacity of the existing 4G LTE network. Currently the site is configured as 2l one LTE carrier (channel) base station. This means that over half of the potential perforrnance of the 4G L.TE network was currently not realized. This is especially impactful for those who rely on the ATT network for broadband data services and who increasingly use their mobile phones as their primary communication device (Iandlines to residences have decreased significantly) and rely on their mobile phones to do more (E911, PS, web access, text, etc.). The proposed ITiodification will provide substantial improvement in ce to residents in the area that will allow them to fully experience the advantage of ATT's high speed 4G 4G LTE is capable of delivering speeds up to 10 times faster than industry-average 3G speeds. LTE technology also offers lower latency, or the processing time it takes to move data through a network, such as how long it takes to start downloading a webpage or file once you've sent the request. Lower latency helps to improve the quality of personal wireless services. What's more, LTE uses spectrum more efficiently than other technologies, creating more space to carry data traffic and services and to deliver a better overall network experience. AT&T designs and builds and expands its wireless network as necessary to satisfy its customer service standards, which ensure customers receive rellable high speed data, -1

24 Compliance Notes Occupational Safety & Compliance Engineering (OSC Engineering) has been contracted by Ericsson to conduct an RF (radio frequency) computer simulated analysis. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has set limits on RF energy exposed to humans on a wireless cell site in order to ensure safety. The FCC has also mandated that all RF wireless sites must be in compliance with the FCC limits and a compliance check must be performed annually to ensure site compliance. This report is an in depth analysis summarizing the results of the RF modeling provided to us by AT&T and in relation to relevant FCC RF compliance standards. A reanalysis is recommended upon the site going on air. OSC Engineering uses the FCC OET-65 as well as AT&T ND to make recommendations based on results and information gathered from drawings and Radio Frequency Data Sheets. For this report, OSC Engineering utilized RoofvieW software for the theoretical analysis of the AT&T Cellular Facility. A site-specific compliance plan is recommended for each transmitting site.

26 FCC Regulations and Guidelines from OEl 65 When considering the contributions to field strength or power density from other RF sources, care should be taken to ensure that such variables as reflection and re-radiation are considered. In cases involving very complex sites predictions of RF fields may not be possible, and a measurement survey may be necessary The process for determining compliance for other situations can be similarly accomplished using the techniques described in this section and in Supplement A to this bulletin that deals with radio and television broadcast operations. However, as mentioned above, at very complex sites measurements may be necessary. In the simple example shown in the below diagram, it is desired to determine the power density at a given location X meters from the base of a tower on which are mounted two antennas. One antenna is a CMRS antenna with several channels, and the other is an FM broadcast antenna. The system parameters that must be known are the total ERP for each antenna and the operating frequencies (to determine which MPE limits apply). The heights above ground level for each antenna, Hl and H2, must be known in order to calculate the distances, Rl and R2, from the antennas to the point of interest.

27 Computer Simulation Analysis The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) governs the telecommunications services, facilities, and devices used by the public, industrial and state organizations in the United States. "RoofView is a software analysis tool for evaluating radiofrequency (RF) field levels at roof-top telecommunications sites produced by vertical collinear antennas of the type commonly used in the cellular, paging, PCS, ESMR and conventional two-way radio communications services."2 "RF near-field levels are computed from selected antennas by applying a cylindrical model that takes into account the antenna's aperture height, mounting height above the rool azimuthal beam width for directional antennas and the location of the antennas on the roof Resulting, spatially averaged power densities are expressed as a percentage of a user selectable exposure limit depending on frequency. The entire roof is composed of one-square-foot pixels and RF fields are computed for each of these pixels for each selected antenna."3 Computer simulations produced for clients are simulated with "Uptime = 100%". This means that all transmitters associated an antenna are considered to be "on". 4 RoofView uses a near-field method of computing the field based on assuming that the total input power delivered to the antenna, at its input terminal, is distributed over an imaginary cylindrical surface surrounding the antenna. The height of the cylinder is equal to the aperture height of the antenna while the radius is simply the distance from the antenna at which the field power density is to be computed. Within the aperture of the antenna, this approximation is quite accurate but as the antenna is elevated above the region of interest, the model output must be corrected for mounting height. 5 T h R p S = 21tRh 1 2 Roofview User Guide 4.15, Page 7, Richard A Tell Associates 3 Roofview User Guide 4.15, Page 7, Richard A Tell Associates 4 Roofview User Guide 4.15, Page 10, Richard A Tell Associates 5 Roofview User Guide 4.15, Page 45, Richard A Tell Associates OSC Engineering Inc.

35 FCC MPE Limits (from OETR 65) OSC Engineering uses the FCC's and clients' guidelines to model the computer simulation. Explained in detail in Office of Engineering & Technology, Bulletin No. 65 ("0ET-65") "Evaluating Compliance with FCC Guidelines for Human Exposure to Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Radiation". Occupational/controlled 6 exposure limits apply to situations in which persons are exposed as a consequence of their employment and in which those persons who are exposed have been made fully aware of the potential for exposure and can exercise control over their exposure. Occupational/controlled exposure limits also apply where exposure is of a transient nature as a result of incidental passage through a location where exposure levels may be above general population/uncontrolled limits (see below), as long as the exposed person has been made fully aware of the potential for exposure and can exercise control over his or her exposure by leaving the area or by some other appropriate means. As discussed later, the occupational/controlled exposure limits also apply to amateur radio operators and members of their immediate household. General population/uncontrolled" exposure limits apply to situations in which the general public may be exposed or in which persons who are exposed as a consequence of their employment may not be made fully aware of the potential for exposure or cannot exercise control over their exposure. Therefore, members of the general public would always be considered under this category when exposure is not employment-related, for example, in the case of a telecommunications tower that exposes persons in a nearby residential area.

36 limits for Maximum Permissible Exposure (MPE)8 "The FCC Exposure limits are based on data showing that the human body absorbs RF energy at some frequencies more efficiently than at others. The most restrictive limits occur in the frequency range of MHz where whole-body absorption of RF energy by human beings is most efficient. At other frequencies whole-body absorption is less efficient, and, consequently, the MPE limits are less restrictive."9 (A) limits for Occupational/Controlled Exposure E~crj: Fe,:: //(::J'-Ie'jc Fee A'''ero~jn:~ Titre. :;-te'klt'-, :E; IEI:, HI: ::,r S 11'I'I'rn F',\ " -,~,~ '., 614 1,6: ;, 6 1'0,4'2'/.1,8'iif I (, :51.4 ~) !,,-, '1 6 (8) Limits for General Population IUncontrolied Exposure E8C.

38 Limitations OSC Engineering completed this evaluation analysis based on information and data provided by the client. The data provided by the client is assumed to be accurate. Estimates of the unknown. standard, and additional transmitting sites are noted and based on FCC regulation and client requirements. These are estimated to the best of our professional knowledge. This report is completed by OSC Engineering to determine whether the wireless communications facility complies with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Radio Frequency (RF) Safety Guidelines. The Office of Engineering and Technology (OET-65) Evaluating Compliance with FCC Guidelines for Human Exposure to Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Radiation has been prepared to provide assistance in determining whether proposed or existing transmitting facilities, operations or devices comply with limits for human exposure to radiofrequency (RF) fields adopted by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) II, As each site is getting upgraded and changed, this report will become obsolete as this report is based on current information per the client per the date of the report. Use of this document will not hold OSC Engineering Inc. nor it's employees liable legally or otherwise. This report shall not be used as a determination as to what is safe or unsafe on a given site. All workers or other people accessing any transmitting site should have proper EME awareness training, This includes, but is not limited to, obeying posted signage. keeping a minimum distance from antennas, watching EME awareness videos and formal classroom training. 11 OET-65 "FCC Guidelines for Evaluating Exposure to RF Emissions" I pg. 1 OSC Engineering Inc.
