Wireless Telecommunications Facilities in the Public Right of Way


Learn about the latest issues and trends with wireless installations in the public right-of-way.

Recent Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Orders, the growing demand for wireless network capacity, and the planned 5G network rollout are placing a strain on local governments to permit and regulate wireless facility installations in the public right-of-way. Local governments are often unsure what steps to take to establish proper permitting procedures while protecting the aesthetic character of their communities. This topic will help local governments to understand the impacts of applicable federal laws and regulations. The material will explain telecommunications industry trends, the requirements being placed on local governments, and the actions that localities should take. Failing to have the necessary permitting procedures and wireless regulations in place can result in expensive legal challenges or the installation of large, unsightly wireless facilities in the public right-of-way. The information will allow local governments to identify needs and develop strategies for effectively regulating the installation of small wireless facilities.
