Does the Town’s ordinance favor one neighborhood over another?

No. In compliance with state law, the ordinance draws a distinction between wireless applications proposed in the public right-of-way and those proposed on private property. While the Town has less discretion reviewing proposals in the public right-of-way, each category of wireless application (macro or micro cell) is subject to the same development standards of its type regardless of location. On privately owned land, each application is subject to a “location preference” analysis where locations near residential areas and the downtown are discouraged.
