Regulating Placement of Cellphone Towers Is Hampered by Law

The City Council again was asked to decide whether or not a cellphone tower could be placed on the roof of an apartment building. As you know, I sponsored legislation that placed a moratorium on citing cellphone towers until the city could develop reasonable regulations. That moratorium is over and cellphone companies are filing applications to place towers all over Long Beach. Unfortunately because the federal law regulates cellphone communication, the City is rather limited in what restrictions we can place. Below is an interesting legal analysis I found that explains the law and what cities can do. Local Matter or Federal Case the Network of Cell Tower Regulation in California
