[ARCHIVED] Telecom tower rules to be revised for next gen technology

Use of wireless communication technologies has been exploding along with the need for bandwidth, access, and the technologies to support them. Recently, they have included the introduction of mini-cellular transmitters, formally known as Distributed Antenna Systems, or DAS, to fill service gaps between the tower-based facilities that handle most of today’s voice and data traffic. Crown Castle Communications, a contractor working on mini-tower installations for Verizon Wireless, anticipates installing several DAS units in Cranberry, so the Township has been working to update its regulations as they apply to wireless communication systems – both tall towers and minis, as well as those placed in and outside public rights of way. At its September 23 meeting, Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors invited public testimony and agreed to consider adoption of the revised ordinance at its October 2 meeting. For more information, contact Community Development Director Ron Henshaw at ron.henshaw@cranberrytownship.org.
