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.
