In response to the Federal Communication Commission's Declaratory Ruling and Third Report and Order of September 27, 2018, Teton County is considering changes to the Land Development Regulations (LDRs). The FCC's ruling is intended to speed the deployment of small wireless facilities and limit local control over these facilities. Planning Staff has prepared a proposed LDR text amendment to comply with the FCC's rules for application processing and fees and to implement design standards for small wireless facilities on private property. The proposed design standards closely follow the standards that Teton County has already adopted pertaining to poles and small wireless facilities in public rights-of-way. The proposal also includes clarification and cleanup of existing standards for non-small wireless communications facilities.
PUBLIC HEARINGS POSTPONED: The PLANNING COMMISSION review of this amendment was continued to September 28th at 6pm in the County Administration Building. The BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS hearing on the amendment is postponed to October 20, 2020 at 9am at the same location.
