Sec. 27-369.  Shared use of wireless telecommunications facilities and other structures.

 

(a)   The city, as opposed to the construction of a new tower, shall prefer locating on existing towers or others structures without increasing the height. The applicant shall submit a comprehensive report inventorying existing towers and other suitable structures within two (2) miles of the location of any proposed new tower, unless the applicant can show that some other distance is more reasonable and demonstrate conclusively why an existing tower or other suitable structure cannot be used.

 

(b)  An applicant intending to locate on an existing tower or other suitable structure shall be required to document the intent of the existing owner to permit its use by the applicant.

 

(c)  Such shared use shall consist only of the minimum antenna array technologically required to provide service primarily and essentially within the city, to the extent practicable, unless good cause is shown.
