WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS ORDINANCE - PUBLIC HEARING
Hillsborough City Council Meeting Monday, September 9th - 6:00 p.m.
The first reading of the Town of Hillsborough's new Wireless Communications Facilities ordinance is on the agenda for the City Council's September 9th meeting. This action is being taken after several public informational meeting earlier this year, receiving testimony from dozens of residents, meeting with wireless carriers, analysis of State and Federal laws, discussing draft ordinances at the past two City Council meetings and review of similar ordinances from other California jurisdictions.
Hillsborough first adopted a wireless communications ordinance in 2006 to regulate the location of wireless communications facilities in the Town in a manner that recognizes the benefits of wireless communications technology but accommodates the values of our community. Specific points listed in the ordinance included reducing visual effects of wireless communications facilities, preserving the rural character of the Town, encouraging co-location of facilities, and locating facilities where impacts on the Town's residents are minimized. Since 2006, changes in the wireless industry, new legislation and court rulings have reshaped how local wireless ordinances are to be applied. In light of these significant changes, the City Council adopted a moratorium on the processing of all wireless communications facilities to allow the community and staff an opportunity to develop an ordinance that balances wireless needs, infrastructure impacts, and community aesthetics.
Click the attached file for the proposed ordinance, a copy is available at the City Clerk's office at Town Hall. All members of the public are invited to review the proposed ordinance, submit comments to firstname.lastname@example.org and attend the September 9th City Council meeting.
