III. Area 4 Planning and Land Use: discussion of ZA 2014-1962(CUW).

Representative Linda Williams to present. http://www.hhwnc.org/files/Documents/PDFs/6801%20Hollywood.pdf
Don Williams explained that Hollywood and Highland does not have enough wireless capacity during the Holiday months for the increased usage. Verizon Wireless is in the process of installing permanent service for just the Hollywood and Highland center usage. That will take approximately 2 years. Until that system is up and running, Verizon Wireless is asking for a temporary wireless system on the roof. 3 Kiosks the size to be 10 feet high and 3×3 wide. It will just be used for 3 months, then taken down.* Stakeholder questioned health issues and Don Williams responded that it only projects 100 watts of power, not enough to reach into the surrounding neighborhoods. Less than a microwave. If approved by Planning Commission they will try for Black Friday (Thanksgiving)
There were no other concerns from Stakeholders.
