If Landlord permits a third party to place its antennas on the Tower, Landlord shall, unless othenvise agreed between Tenant and such third party, require such third party to remit (in addition to any rent to which Tenant is entitled to receive from such third party pursuant to Paragraph 22 (e)) to Tenant its pro rata share (based on the number of users or antennae which the Tower will support, as jointly determined by Landlord and Tenant) of the construction costs, and/or licensing fee and remit such sums to Tenant. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall Landlord have any liability to Tenant under this paragraph. and Landlord's failure to cause such sums to be remitted to Tenant shall not constitute a default hereunder, provided, however, that nothing in this Agreement and/or in any agreement between Landlord and such third party shall be construed to restrict any legal and/or equitable right or remedy of Tenant if such sums are not remitted to Tenant by such third party, including, without limitation, Tenant's right to terminate any agreement it has entered pursuant to which such third party 12

is permitted to place its antennae on the Tower.


(g)

Tenant's antennas shall operate only in the frequency range approved by the federal agencies. If Tenant wishes to use a frequency or frequencies other than the approved frequency. Tenant shall request Landlord's permission in writing prior to receiving a frequency change from the FCC or other governmental agency authorized to establish frequencies. Landlord may grant or withhold such permission in its sole but reasonable discretion. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, it shall be reasonable for Landlord to (a) withhold consent if other antennas on the Site (whether or not owned by Landlord) are operating in the range requested by Tenant, (b) withhold consent if Landlord believes that its policy requiring co-location of transmitting antennas would not be served by
permitting Tenant to expand its frequencies. and/or (c) condition its consent on

the payment of additional rent. Nothing in this Lease shall be construed to limit Landlord's right to grant other parties the right to construct, operate or modify Towers, equipment platforms or antennas on the Site (including the Tower, it being understood that such other parties would have no right to modify Tenant's Tower); provided, however, that such construction, operation or modification does not interfere with the operation of Tenant's equipment platfoinis, antennas or the Communications Facility.

(h)

Tenant acknowledges that Landlord requires co - location of antennae located on


the Site to the extent permitted by engineering and aesthetic limitations. Tenant agrees to design and construct the Monopole to accommodate at least two additional users and/or antennae.

(i)

Tenant shall, upon Landlord's request, fence and buffer the Premises or any portion thereof. If the Communications Facility is to be constructed near any existing structure or structures on the Site, Tenant shall (a) construct the Communications Facility so that it does not affect the structural integrity of the existing structure or structures and (b) provide Landlord, at its request, with a report prepared by an independent third party professional engineer confirming the structural integrity of the existing structure or structures following the construction of the Communications Facility. Tenant shall restore in compliance with the Federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) (and any state or local law counterpart) any of Landlord's facilities physically altered by Tenant's work, only if the altered facilities previously complied with the ADA. Tenant shall not make further additions or improvements to the Communications Facility or the Premises without first obtaining Landlord's written consent, which consent shall not be withheld, conditioned or delayed unreasonably.

Tenant shall install any electrical, radio, electromagnetic or other types of protectors deemed required by the Landlord or its consultant(s) to protect the interference, damage or adverse impact Landlord's property and equipment from caused by Tenant's use of the Premises. 13

( k)

Upon termination of the Lease, Tenant shall remove its equipment and restore the Premises to their former condition, except for reasonable wear and tear and damage by casualty not caused by Tenant. As long as the Communications Facility and equipment continue to serve as collateral of a third party financing entity, Landlord waives any lien rights it may have concerning Tenant's Communications Facility which is deemed Tenant's personal property and not fixtures, and, as long as the Communications Facility and equipment continue to serve as collateral of a third party financing entity, Tenant has the right to remove the same at any time without Landlord's consent. In the event that the Communications Facility or any of its associated equipment ceases to be subject to a security interest, Tenant shall provide Landlord with written notice thereof within thirty (30) days thereafter. Landlord acknowledges that Tenant has entered into a financing arrangement including promissory notes and financial and security agreements for the financing of the Communications Facility (the "Collateral") with a third party financing entity (and may in the future enter into additional financing arrangements with other financing entities). In connection therewith, Landlord (i) consents to the installation of the Collateral; (ii) disclaims any interest in the Collateral, as fixtures or otherwise; and (iii) agrees that the Collateral shall be exempt from execution, foreclosure, sale, levy, attachment, or distress for any Rent due or to become due and that such Collateral may be removed at any time without recourse to legal proceedings as long as the Communications Facility and Equipment continue to serve as collateral of a third-party financing entity. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, Tenant shall have the option, in its sole discretion, to convey title to the Monopole to Landlord, subject to all other applicable terms and conditions of this Lease. In the event that Tenant exercises the foregoing option, by written notice to Landlord as provided in this Lease, the terms of Paragraphs 17 (1) and 17(m) shall be deemed not to apply to the Monopole itself, but shall be deemed to apply only to the antennae, equipment, equipment shelter and other property of Tenant located at the Site in accordance with the terms of the Lease. During the term of this Lease, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Landlord may not sell, assign, mortgage, pledge, hypothecate, convey or otherwise transfer its interest in the Monopole without the written consent of Tenant.

If the interference is not corrected within thirty (30) days of receipt of notification (or 14

such time as may reasonably be required with exercise of due diligence provided such repairs are begun within said 30 days), Tenant will cease operation of the equipment causing such interference until such interference is cured. Landlord shall require that all future radio operators desiring to use this location will first coordinate with Tenant to ensure that their frequencies and antenna locations will be compatible with Tenant's so as to prevent harmful interference.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION: APPROVAL PROJECT SUMMARY


Montgomery County Public Schools has submitted, under . the Mandatory Referral pro ce ss, an application by T-Mobile Northeast LLC, to replace an existing stadium light pole at Springbrook High School with a telermrnunicatiorts monopole that would hold fights for the stadium as well as telecommun ications antennas belonging to T-Mobile. The existing 91foot high stadium light pole on the northeast side of the stadium would be replaced by a 99foot high telecommunications monopole with stadium lights located at their present height.

THE SITE
The Springbrook High School site comprises 27.4 acres and is located approximately 2,000 feet west of New Hampshire Avenue between Valley Brook Drive and Springbrook Drive. The school fronts onto Valley Brook Drive which provides the only vehicular access to the site. Adjacent to the site to the north and east are single-family homes in the R-200 Zone.

There is a 14-foot change in elevation from the stadium field and the nearby parking area up to the rest of the school site. The school was built in 1960, renovated in 1994, and comprises 305,000 square feet. There are about -500 parking spaces on the site, divided into several areas, and all having access from Valley Brook Drive. Springbrook is a signature high school with an emphasis on information technology and has an enrollment of over 1,900 students.

Single-family homes in the Rural Zone are located to the south. The Northwest Branch Stream Valley Park extends along the west and northwest boundary of the site. There is a 14-foot change in elevation from the stadium field and the nearby parking apea up to the rest of the school site. The school was built in 1960, renovated in 1994, and comprises 305,000 square feet.

A Mandatory Referral for stadium lights for Springb-rook High School was recommended for approval by the Planning Board on June 12, 2003.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Springbrook High School's stadium is currently illuminated by four poles with lights mounted at 91 feet. T-Mobile proposes to remove one of the light poles located on the northeast side of the stadium adjacent to the bleachers and replace it with a 99-foot high telecommunications monopole with the existing stadium lighting located at their present height. At the top of the monopole, T-Mobile would install an antenna array. 1Mobile would also install electronic equipment on a 10-foot x 20-foot concrete pad within a 20-foot x 36-foot fenced compound near the proposed monopole. The .compound will be enclosed by an 8-foot high chain link fence with privacy slatting.
ANALYSIS Master Plan

Springbrook High School is located within the area of the White Oak Master Plan, that was adopted and approved in 1997. The Master Plan states that public schools are an essential component of community life and identity, and provide not only educational but recreational services to the community as well. Development Standards
ni gti tence with p r ivacy slatting. Sec. '59-A-6.12. of the Zoning Ordinance requires that

As noted in the Project Description above, T Mobile_proposes to have its ele-ctronic r-,=1..). .t f-It-fuot
-

"if the nearest adjoining prope residential zone, the equipment building or cabinet must be faced is classified in a with brick or other suitable material on all sides and landscaped to a height of at least 3 feet." -ile has stated that they will fully comply with this provision of the Zoning Ordinanc TM mail, Attachment 7). {see ee-

_,

Environment
This Mandatory Referral has a Forest Conservation Plan exemption (#4-07164E) for modification to an existing developed property. Environmental issues are not significantly affected by the proposed modification. The proposed development will be limited to the replacement of an existing stadium light pole and a nearby equipment compound. There will be no impact to existing wooded areas or to stream systems.

Transportation
This Mandatory Referral will not require any coordination with the Montgomery County Department of Public Works and Transportation or the Maryland State Highway Administration on new or modified access requirements. The proposed change will not generate any vehicular trips on a daily basis.

PUBUC CONSULTATION
Letters were mailed to civic associations and homeowners in the area, notifying that a meeting would be held on this Mandatory Referral. The m ee ting took place on March 13, 2007, and T-Mobile representatives addressed questions that one homeowner had. Postcard notices were also sent out to civic associations and homeowners in the area on the proposed Mandatory Referral.

CONCLUSION
Staff rec o mmends approval of this Mandatory Referral.
