New FCC Order Mandating Approval of Cell Tower Changes
The program will cover a new FCC order that expands the types of changes to radio, TV and cell towers that municipalities must approve. Important provisions include the continued need for code compliance, changes in shot clocks and height increases, and narrowing local authority regarding concealed or “stealth” towers. A related rule-making considers mandating local approval of expansions outside the current tower site. The program will cover these points, their practical effect and municipal responses.
Speakers: John Pestle & Jonathan Kramer
