Burbank’s city planners will be hosting a community meeting to provide information about the regulations for wireless telecommunications facilities (cell phone antennas and towers).
The City Council approved a major update to Burbank’s wireless facility regulations in 2011. The purpose of the update was to make sure that Burbank’s regulations are consistent with federal law and recent court rulings and to ensure that the City has the ability to regulate the aesthetics and appearance of the facilities.
Since the update was adopted, the City Council and staff have received questions from the community about wireless facilities and the City’s ability to regulate them. The Burbank City Council requested that this informational meeting be held to let interested members of the community know about Burbank’s regulations and about the limitations in federal law that prevent Burbank from regulating wireless facilities based on concerns about the health effects of radio frequency emissions.
