Cell Tower Update

posted in: News | 0

The following message was distributed from Montgomery County on July 27, 2017, and forwarded by the Montgomery County Coalition to Control Cell Towers MC4T:

“A draft Zoning Text Amendment (ZTA) and summary are available for review at http://montgomerycountymd.gov/towers.  The ZTA would amend rules related to deployment of small antennas street light, utility, and commercial parking lot light poles, as well as on lower height buildings.  The website will be updated shortly to allow posting of comments and additional materials and interactive maps will be added.  In the interim, comments can be submitted to AntennaZTA@montgomerycountymd.gov.”

The website cited above contains both the full and summarized draft Zoning Text Amendment to handle the deployment of cell towers in an effort to offer greater compromises between residential concerns and industry needs.  As you can see, right now you can provide comments to a County email address, whereas soon you will be able to post comments directly to the site.
