What's the impact of cell towers on the environment?
There is currently no information on cell tower impact on the environment. Radio frequency (RF) exposure issues and limits for telecommunication antenna systems are regulated by Health Canada’s Safety Code 6 guidelines.

The Protocols encourage submission conformity with the Town’s Municipal Development Plan policies regarding environmentally sensitive areas and discourage the placement of towers on ecologically significant natural lands, riverbank lands or sites of topographical prominence.
