Workshop on Implementing Georgia’s Small Cell/5G Law: What Local Governments Must Know
August 12, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Please join representatives from ACCG, GMA, AT&T and Verizon on August 12th for a training workshop on Georgia’s new small cell permitting law. The “Streamlining Wireless Facilities and Antennas Act”, effective October 1, 2019, resulted from two years of negotiations between wireless providers and local governments. It establishes a statewide, streamlined process covering all aspects of the permitting of small cell poles, antennas and equipment in local governments’ rights-of-way. The workshop will review the new small cell technology; various aspects of the law that local governments must know; local permitting conditions and requirements; what can be expected in the roll out of small cells; and crafting appropriate local ordinances to comply with the law.
