5G Small Cell

Per State requirements, the City must allow for cellular wireless companies to add 5G small cell wireless facilities within the community. 

To learn more about what local governments are doing to understand and work with the wireless companies, check out these resources below:

What is 5G?
5G stands for fifth-generation cellular wireless. 5G is intended to bring communities three new aspects to cellular wireless:
  1. Bigger channels (to speed up data)
  2. Lower latency (to be more responsive)
  3. The ability to connect a lot more devices at once (for sensors and smart devices)

What Regulations Do We Have Control Over?
With our Small Cell Wireless Facilities Ordinance, it will allow us to regulate small cell wireless infrastructure and the activities of wireless infrastructure providers and wireless service providers in regard to the placement and siting of “Small Cell” facilities.
