What does the Town’s Wireless Ordinance do?

The new updated ordinance now:  

1. Complies with new federal and state regulations that have taken effect since the Town’s ordinance was initially adopted in 1996. 

2. Imposes development standards to address both aesthetics and location preferences by requiring that the carrier provide coverage through the “least intrusive means.” 

3. Outlines permit and process requirements that allows the Town to meet the short approval time frame (shot clock) established by federal and state law.
