Policies - Wireless Communications on City Property

In 1996, the City Council passed Resolution 29344 which allows City facilities to be used for wireless communication facilities. The resolution established three criteria for evaluating proposals for use of City property:

  • Wireless facilities shall not unreasonably interfere with the intended City use of its real property or structures.
  • Such use of City real property must not violate any laws or impose limitations on the use of the City property nor any limitations on the structure established for the protection of the neighboring community.

Any City structure proposed for wireless facility shall have adequate physical capacity for the wireless facility. The lessee may propose and install renovations to a City structure, at its own expense and only after the City’s Jurisdictional Department has given written approval.

Council Bill Number: 111865, which allows individual City Departments to negotiate and execute wireless Communications Site Agreements. Please contact the Department of Jurisdiction for more information on leasing a City property for wireless site.
