This week, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released a proposed Order which would severely limit local government’s control over the public rights of way. The Order deals specifically with the deployment of small cell facilities and restrict the conditions and standards municipalities place on siting applications.
The FCC will need to vote on the proposed order before it can become effective, but it is expected to be approved at its next meeting on September 8. To read more about the order, including what limitations it sets for municipalities, please review the League’s recent blog post.
