Sec. 35.1-97. Telecommunications facilities on antenna support structures.
(a) Any telecommunications facilities which are not attached to a tower may be permitted as an accessory use to any antenna support structure at least thirty (30) feet tall, regardless of the zoning restrictions applicable to the zoning district where the structure is located. Telecommunications facilities are prohibited on all other structures.
(b) The owner of such structure or telecommunication facilities shall, by written certification, graphic representation, and detailed plans to the technical review committee verify that:
(1) The antenna support structure and telecommunications facilities comply with the statewide building code;
(2) Any telecommunications facilities and their appurtenances, located upon the roof of an antenna support structure, are set back a distance at least equal to the height of the telecommunications facilities. However, this setback requirement shall not apply to telecommunications facilities and their appurtenances, located above the roof of an antenna support structure, if such facilities are appropriately screened from view through the use of screening techniques that are compatible with the surrounding built environment and approved by the city. Setback requirements shall not apply to stealth antennas which are mounted to the exterior of antenna support structures below the roof, but which do not protrude more than twenty-four (24) inches from the side of such an antenna support structure; and
(3) All applicable standards of this article are being met. (Ord. No. O-97-246, 12-9-97)
