Following the pre-application consultation the applicant can submit an application for a Temporary Access Permit that will allow surveyors or other consultants required to complete due diligence to access the property. The temporary access permit request must be sent to the appropriate District Office with a copy to the Tower Site Manager. There are specific requirements for the Land Survey which must be met.
Once a survey has been completed, the applicant can submit the survey and the Tower Site Application along with any other required documents to the Tower Site Manager. Tower Site applications require Board approval. Once a complete application has been received by the State Land Board the process for obtaining the tower site lease will generally take 60 days.
If the tower site lessee does not wish to renew or continue the lease, they must notify the Board in writing at least six months prior to the expiration date of the lease. Such notice shall address how and when all equipment will be removed and the premises restored to the original condition.
If the lessee fails to notify the Board of their intent to either renew the lease or surrender the lease within the final six months of the lease term, all improvements on the leased premises will be deemed abandoned and may, at the Board’s option, be removed by the Board at the Tower Site holder’s expense, retained by the Board, or sold by the Board with all proceeds going to the Board.
