Council to Consider Cell Tower Regulations
Written by Andrew-Rossi on May 2, 2017
The Cody City Council tonight will consider two ordinances regarding cell towers in residential areas.
Tonight’s votes come on the heels of a new City Code that was adopted last month that regulates wireless communication facilities in commercial or industrial zones. The code allows small towers that have limited visibility, but taller towers that are more noticeable will have additional requirements.
According to the new ordinance, towers of up to 110 feet tall are allowed in an area on Road 2AB, but in other areas of town, such as Beacon Hill, Beck Lake, the West Strip and Cottonwood Avenue, cell towers will be limited to no more than 70 or 80 feet.
The ordinances under consideration at tonight’s meeting would amend and adopt definitions clarifying language with regards to wireless communication facilities, and would also set regulations for cell towers in residential areas.
The Cody City Council will meet at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 1338 Rumsey Avenue.
