Last meeting on wireless ordinance will be held tomorrow

leave a comment »

Tomorrow, the city will be holding its last of three public meetings on a draft ordinance meant to regulate the placement of cellular antennas in Glendale.

The meeting will take place Saturday at 11 a.m. at Sparr Heights Community Center. City officials will be asking for public input to potentially incorporate into the ordinance before it reaches the City Council for approval.

The ordinance, if adopted in its current form, would require carriers to not only prove why they need to place their antennas at desired locations, but to also apply for permits and possibly face Planning Commission approval.

The proposed regulations are the result of controversy last year surrounding a proposed T-Mobile micro-cell site in the city right-of-way of an upscale neighborhood.

I attended the first meeting, which was held at the Pacific Park Community Center, and there were only a dozen or so residents in attendance.
