Contact email@example.com to request:
The Town of Burlington created a Small Cell Equipment committee to study, along with Town Counsel and the Board of Selectmen, a policy for requests for small cell equipment to be placed on utility poles in Burlington.
Members of that committee included:
- Board of Selectman
- Inspector of Buildings
- Planning Director
- Police Safety
- Board of Health
- Fire Department
- Zoning Board of Appeals
- Purchasing Analyst
- Bylaw Review
- Town Engineer
- Town Clerk
The committee reviewed design criteria and submission application. Because of the strict timeline guidelines, the committee and counsel recommended a professional engineer to review all applications that come in.
It is acknowledged that there is concern about the possible health effects of wireless telecommunication facilities, however the Federal Communications Act of 1996, which is still in effect, only allows that local governments require applicable federal standards.
