Week of June 19
June 17 DDNA (District D Neighborhood Alliance) meeting featured City of Raleigh Right-of-Way Manager Noah Otto discussing small cell phone towers/wireless infrastructure in City right-of-way.  Small towers can be between 35-120 feet tall, providing a faster connection than a taller 300 foot tower.  Safety, health, and historic overlay would be the only reasons to deny a tower placement, and historic overlay may be removed at the federal level.  A model ordinance currently is being worked on, as well as a map for the city website that would show where the small towers are.  45 locations are pending approval; 10 to 20 have been approved.

All meetings at Raleigh Municipal Building, 222 West Hargett Street, unless otherwise noted.
