Peachtree City has developed guidelines for the siting of telecommunication towers and antennas, to advocate the joint use of new and existing tower sites and to help provide telecommunications services to the community effectively and efficiently. The guidelines are designed to configure towers and antennas in a way that, while conforming to the mandates of federal law, minimizes the potential adverse impact they may have on nearby properties by locating them in nonresidential areas and to discourage their proliferation throughout the city.
On October 21, 2010, City Council adopted the revised telecommunications tower ordinance below. Any application for a new wireless tower facility will be reviewed by a third party and city staff for compliance with FCC standards and city ordinances.
In an e-mail from NextG dated January 13, 2011, representatives from NextG informed the city they have "notified their client of the successful completion of the formal application process with the City of Peachtree City and await their signal when to proceed. Although they have expressed earnest interest in improving coverage within that specific area of Kedron Village, please note that prioritization of network deployment (and the associated allocation of capital) can change depending upon a variety of factors, many of which are outside our control. I appreciate the City’s inquiry and will keep you apprised of developments on my end."
As soon as a formal application is received by City Staff, this site will be updated with details about their implementation schedule.
