Input sought on wireless telecommunication facilities rules
For Immediate Release: Tuesday, October 01, 2019
The public is encouraged to comment on draft rules proposed for wireless telecommunication facilities in County road rights-of-way.
The Federal Communications Commission requires local jurisdictions to allow small wireless facilities. LUT's issue paper Telecommunication Facilities Located in the Right-of-Way identifies the need to amend County right-of-way permitting rules and the Community Development Code to accommodate federally required small wireless facilities.
Washington County is committed to planning and protecting the uses of the land and to building and maintaining a great transportation system, balancing care for the natural environment, economic development, safety and community livability.
