Ordinance Amending AMC Title 16 Telecommunications

The opportunity to review and provide comments for the Ordinance Amending AMC Title 16 Telecommunications is now open. The amended ordinance will establish standards for telecommunications facilities in the City of Ashland. 

This resolution outlines design standards for small cell facilities, dictating guidelines for public rights-of-way design. Unlike ordinances, resolutions like this can swiftly adapt to legal and technological changes. Tailored to implement the new changes to the Telecommunication Ordinance, this resolution ensures safety and aesthetics and are crafted to coordinate with the city's geography and planning laws.They also offer flexibility, including deviations when compliance is technically unfeasible. These rules also accommodate federal "shot clock" time limits for application approval, ensuring adherence to federal legal requirements while avoiding violations.

Dates to take note of: 
  • Deadline to make comments is Thursday, March 14, 2024. 
  • First reading of the ordinance before City Council will take place on Tuesday, March 19, 2024. 
  • Second reading of the ordinance before City Council will take place on Tuesday, April 2, 2024.
