On March 5, 2019, the Board of Supervisors (Board) instructed the Director of Planning to prepare an ordinance that at minimum defines and establishes standards for the location, height and design of wireless communication facilities; conduct outreach to residents, the wireless communication facilities industry and other interested parties; prepare an appropriate environmental document for the ordinance in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act and the County’s environmental review procedures; and present the ordinance and environmental document to the Regional Planning Commission and Board for consideration at their respective public hearings. Statement of Proceedings


The County is currently preparing draft ordinances and design guidelines for Title 16 (Highways) for small cell facilities in the public right of way and Title 22 for all other wireless facilities. The draft ordinances will be available for public comment in Fall 2021 and the Board of Supervisors will consider adopting it sometime during the first half of 2022.
