What can the Town do to regulate locations?
Although the Town is not the approving authority for telecommunication structure siting, the Protocols establish a procedure allowing the Town to influence the placement of telecommunication structures.

The Town will engage in pre-submission consultation meetings with the proponent to discuss the location of the proposed telecommunication structure, among other criteria. The Town will oversee the submission process and will provide input regarding preferred locations. Ultimately, the proposed location of a telecommunication structure will influence the issuance of a letter of concurrence or non-concurrence.
