Kutztown City Council approved an ordinance last week regulating the placement of minicell towers on the right-of-way in borough streets, according to the Reading Eagle.

The ordinance anticipates the next phase of wireless communications, which is to erect so-called monopole towers with antennas in municipal rights-of-way. Kutztown’s ordinance spells out where wireless communications facilities, or WCFs, can be placed in the borough by right or conditional use.

A conditional use permit would still be required, for example, to put antennas on smoke stacks, water towers or farm silos. The ordinance bans antennas on buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places or a property designated as historic by the state, the Reading Eagle reported.
