City Council Approves Small Wireless Facilities Policy

The Waukee City Council approved a Small Wireless Facilities Policy to define the general requirements for the installation of small wireless facilities within the City rights-of-way. The policy creates requirements for the siting and design of wireless communication structures, facilities, and related utilities. As such the provisions of this policy are intended to regulate and guide the installation of small wireless facility antennas and related accessory structures on infrastructure and to regulate and guide the installation of new communication towers when needed. It is the desire of the City to encourage the development of an aesthetically pleasing local environment. It is also the intent of the City to guide, direct, and regulate the expansion of wireless technology, as it provides a valuable service to City residents and businesses. It is not the City’s goal to unreasonably discriminate among providers of functionally equivalent services nor to have the effect of prohibiting, either directly or indirectly, the provisions of small wireless services. It is the City’s goal to encourage wireless providers to construct new facilities disguised through techniques of camouflage design, as defined in this Policy.

Questions can be directed to the Waukee Public Works Department at 515-978-7920.
