City Sends Second SB 649 Opposition Letter

Post Date:07/20/2017 4:15 PM

SB 649 allows small cell antennas on public pole structures to be as large as six cubic feet, and its associated equipment (i.e. power supply, etc) as large as 21 cubic feet on the pole structure itself. The proposal excludes the following ancillary equipment from all of the size limitations mentioned above:

  • Electric meters and their pedestals;
  • Concealment elements;
  • Demarcation boxes;
  • Grounding equipment;
  • Power transfer switches; and
  • Vertical cable runs. 

Ultimately, SB 649 and its proposed amendments would unnecessarily shut out public input when a better approach would be one that encourages coordination and vision for “small cell” deployment in a way that works best for each city.
