Town Council Approves Cellular Infrastructure Limitations
The Town of Paradise Valley Town Council recently passed updates to town code so to set forth specific review and design criteria for those looking to build cell-phone towers within city limits.
According to the Paradise Valley Independent, after HB2365 was approved and signed into law earlier this year, the measure made it easier for wireless carriers such as Verizon or AT&T install, operate and maintain small-cell equipment within city and town rights-of-way.
With the law set to go into effect on Aug. 9, the town worked hold community meetings and hearings throughout the summer. In fact, the vote was held just hours before the state law took effect.
“The amended Town Code will require towers be disguised as a 24-foot faux cactus with associated equipment to be buried underground,” the newspaper wrote. “The finished tower must blend in with its surroundings and not be placed on a sidewalk or visible concrete area.”
