City adopts policy on "small cell" facilities

The City of Oskaloosa has adopted and published design guidelines for the placement of small wireless facilities within the public right-of-way.  Often known as "small cell', these facilities are the basis for the next-generation 5G communication networks.  The guidelines intend to:
  1. Provide standards, technical criteria and details for utility facilities in the City’s right-of-way to be uniformly applied to all applicants and owners of utility facilities or support structures for such facilities.
  2. Enhance the ability of utility providers to deploy services in the City quickly, effectively and efficiently so that residents, businesses and visitors benefit from ubiquitous and robust utility service availability.
  3. Preserve the character of the City’s neighborhoods and corridors.
  4. Ensure that utility facilities and support structures conform to all applicable health and safety regulations and will blend into their environment to the greatest extent possible.
  5. Comply with, and not conflict with or preempt, all applicable state and federal laws.
The guidelines are available at the link below.
