In 2018, City Council appropriated $50,000 as part of the 2019-2020 biennial budget to fund the completion of the City’s first Wireless Master Plan. The project is expected to better position the City for the future deployment of wireless telecommunication infrastructure and to minimize visual impacts to neighborhoods and the community.

Work on the plan has resumed as of September 2020 after a hiatus due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please join us by taking a quick questionnaire and dropping a pin on our map to rate your wireless service.
