Installation of Small Cell Nodes to Reduce "Dead" Service Areas
It is imperative that emergency calls to our Police, EMS and Fire departments not be dropped due to poor cell services and "dead" areas in the Town. This was an ongoing problem for both emergency services as well as regular residential calls. New technology allows small cell nodes to be placed on top of existing poles and push a signal of 2,000 feet in all directions. In order to promote the installation of small cell nodes, a local law was adopted in 2022 that allows wireless carriers to apply for permits to add cell nodes to existing poles and structures rather than using the previously protracted process of applying through a zoning application.
