Telecommunication Facilities

The proposed Zoning Ordinance amendment seeks to increase the maximum allowed volume and height of an unmanned equipment cabinet that is permitted to be located by-right on an existing or replacement utility distribution and transmission pole or light/camera standard in any street right-of-way or utility easement, in support of a telecommunication facility. In addition, the amendment also clarifies the limitation placed on the number of permitted antennas for such facilities by eliminating the maximum allotment when the proposed antennas are entirely enclosed within a stealth extension of the existing or replacement pole or standard.
