Initiating Wireless Infrastructure Development Projects
As discussed in Module 7 Search Area Assignment, and Module 8 Search Area Mapping, upon receiving a search area assignment the site acquisition consultant immediately evaluates the input (assignment) received from the RF engineer and reviews obvious possibilities for collocation and alternatives to collocation. The consultant uses tools and techniques and performs tasks to map the search area to discover zoning, property ownership, and environmental considerations. As discussed in Module 9 Zone-ability; Module 10 Constructability; and Module 11 Lease-ability, in-depth research determines property locations that best suit the client criteria and meet the search area objective. Property owners of the most promising options for wireless facility development are contacted to solicit their interest and qualify their properties as candidates for site selection, as discussed in Module 12 Property Owner Communications. The output of the site acquisition initiating process is the search area report, as detailed in Module 13 Search Area Report (SCIP). The SAR is the input for site selection reviewed by decision-makers.
