Wireless telecommunication facilities: Be prepared for the coming wave of upgrades and expansions

Increasing customer demand for wireless broadband services is driving the need for upgraded and expanded wireless facilities including cell towers. Recently adopted federal law requires local governments to permit expansion of these facilities in a timely manner. AWC hosted a webinar on January 8, 2014 for participants to:

  • Hear how wireless broadband service providers must deploy expanded and improved infrastructure to meet increasing customer demand
  • Learn about new federal law and on-going FCC rulemaking that could impact local governments’ permitting responsibilities for telecommunication facilities
  • Learn lessons from other local governments on their efforts to upgrade their telecommunication ordinances
  • Come away with the knowledge of what you may need to address in your own local telecommunications ordinances

You can view a recording of the one-hour webinar here. Presentation materials for the webinar are available here (first bullet under “Regulations”).
