20.3.JJJ.8 Additional Standards for Wireless Telecommunications Facilities

a. Wireless telecommunications facilities are a permitted or conditional use in all districts with such determination based on whether the wireless telecommunications tower and wireless telecommunications antennas with which they are associated are permitted or conditional.

b.  Wireless telecommunications facilities do not include aboveground utility structures and temporary telecommunications cells on wheels (COW), which are regulated separately by this Ordinance.

c.  All wireless telecommunications facilities shall be completely enclosed in an equipment shelter or cabinet, if they are outdoors. If the wireless telecommunications facilities are visible from outside of the fence required to surround all wireless telecommunications towers, the wireless telecommunications facilities shall meet the building design standards and setback requirements of the zoning district.

d.  Any cabinets or shelters may house only equipment and supplies for operation of the wireless telecommunication tower. Any equipment not used in direct support of such operation shall not be stored on the site. The facility shall be un-staffed.
