Sample Small Cell Code for Villages, Towns and Small Cities


We've collected the best ideas from cities and towns all over the country that are pushing back against the FCC and the unfettered rollout of small cell wireless facilities. 


If your town is receiving requests from wireless carriers or antenna construction companies for permission to construct small cell facilities in public rights-of-way, this document is what you need to get started with your own code to protect property values, privacy, safety and public health. 


Sample State Law Establishing 5G Commission

Many state lawmakers believe that 5G is a federal issue and they are powerless to do anything about tit. But this is not true. Several states have established commissions to investigate and report on the health and safety issues of wireless radiation in general, and 5g in particular. Here is a sample law any state can use to establish a commission.

Wireless Radiation: An Undeniable Risk to Human Health

This 18-page annotated booklet is designed to give decision makers at all levels of government a basic understanding of the science linking exposure to wireless radiation with biological harm, and how this harm can be manifested in different outcomes in different people.  See a few pages from the booklet. 


The booklet is only available in hard copy from the 5G store

The ART Code Checklist 

Local zoning laws regarding small cells and other wireless infrastructure are complex and full of terms and conditions that can be confusing to local lawmakers. To make it easier for these officials to cut through the legalese and find out if their code has the necessary language to protect citizens, we developed this simple one-page checklist. Of course there are many other provisions that are important to include in zoning for small cells, but these are some of the most important.
