ZTA 19-07 Update March 10, 2021: Re-post from Small Cells in Montgomery County.
The Montgomery County Planning, Housing, and Economic Development (PHED) Committee just voted for a new ZTA 19-07 that would allow a utility pole or street light at least 30 feet from your house to be swapped out with a new pole that has antennas.
- 30 FEET SETBACK
Cell antennas can now be placed 30 feet from our homes.
- ZERO PUBLIC COMMENT & HEARINGS:
Antennas proposed for street lights or utility poles 30 feet or more from homes would be effectively automatically approved. There will be no notice nor hearings.
- WIDER POLES
New wider poles will be replacing the street lights and utility poles in order to hold the heavy equipment
- TALLER STREET LIGHTS
Our street lights will go up several feet higher to be capped with cellular antennas.
